**Virginia PTA is participating in the beta rollout of National PTA’s membership database. Because not all units will be able to enroll in the database before our December 1 dues deadline, we will be accepting membership lists and dues in the traditional methods. By the end of the 2018-2019 school year, we hope all VAPTA units will be enrolled in the membership database. For more information, www.vapta.org.
100% Membership, Outstanding, and Superior Awards are automatically calculated and no application is required. These calculations are based upon unit membership and the deadline dates following each description below:
