Maintaining relevance is the first step in maintaining membership. People will join your PTA if they find value in what you do. Likewise, current members will renew membership when that value is delivered.

​To this end, it is strongly encouraged that each PTA develops a member value proposition

to help determine what the value of membership is to each individual member. A well-defined member value proposition gives your PTA the ability to answer these questions effectively:

Why belong to this association?
What’s in it for me?
Who can I connect to here?
