Trademark/Service Mark

The basic policies that govern PTA activities and participation also govern the use of the PTA name. “National Congress of Parents and Teachers,” “Parent Teacher Association,” “PTA,” and “PTSA” are all registered service marks of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers. “California State PTA” is a registered service mark with the California Secretary of State. This means that no group or organization not affiliated with California State PTA may use “PTA.” A service mark has the same legal status as a trademark but is the designation used for services rather than commercial products.

Unless otherwise noted, PTAs may reproduce and distribute materials from California State PTA without expressed, written permission. California State PTA materials may not be duplicated by any other organization or person without written permission of California State PTA.
