Program Planning

Programs should be planned in advance to meet the needs and interests of the members in their concern for children and youth. The program plan should be kept flexible in order to meet situations and conditions that may arise during the year. An observance of Founders Day is recommended. The program committee submits the program plan to the executive board for approval. The executive board recommends the program plan to the membership, which must give the final approval (Creating an Event).

Ways to Make PTA Programs More Productive

The PTA meeting must be important and meaningful.

Survey the members in writing, by email, or by phone to find out what they would like presented at the meetings, such as what they want or need to know about the school, the community or their children. Provide presentations on those topics or activities that bring the whole family to the meeting.
