Membership Cards & Envelopes
Cardstock membership cards are available from your council, or if you are out-of-council contact membership.pdpta(at)gmail.com to arrange to pick up yours.
To print member names on the cardstock membership card, a downloadable word template is available.
Membership envelopes are available for $15 for a box of 500 – from either your council. If you are an out-of-council PTA, contact membership.pdpta(at)gmail.com to arrange to purchase a box and/or send a check to the Peralta District PTA treasurer using the proper remittance form. It is not required that a PTA use our envelopes; many PTA units create their own fliers that invite people to join the PTA.
