Our goal for the Arlington Council of PTAs is to have each local PTA increase their membership numbers from last year!
To help us reach this goal we will need the help of Community Members, Families of AISD Graduates, Business Owners, and everyone else! We are asking you to support the efforts of local, state, and national PTA, by becoming a member of PTA!

Executive Board discussion on student membership
Gain school administration support
Develop student recruiting strategies

Join PTA Online!
Please access your PTA's profile in PT Avenue as soon as possible to ensure your account is ready to go!
1) Confirm that your local dues amount is correct in the Profile > Profile screen. Local Dues equal the total dues amount, less $4.50 for State and National dues. The data you have entered into this profile is what will determine the dues for each member that joins through JoinPTA.org.
2) Confirm the routing and account number for your PTA bank account has been entered into the Profile > ACH tab. Texas PTA will only distribute funds electronically, so any dues received through JoinPTA.org will be held until that information is entered.
3) If your PT Avenue account is not in the 2016-2017 school/fiscal year, your Head Admin should complete the PT Avenue End of Year process from the Profile > End of Year screen.
Update your PT Avenue profile at www.ptavenue.com. If you need your username and password, contact the PT Avenue office.
Why Join PTA?
PTA is a grassroots organization made up of parents, teachers and others around the state who have an interest in children, families and schools. PTA membership is as diverse as Texas is in cultures, education levels and parenting skills. By joining PTA, a member becomes part of the largest child advocacy organization in the state with over 500,000 members across Texas.
Membership is open to anyone concerned with the education, health and welfare of children and youth.
