All local units are governed under Florida PTA and National PTA guidelines. The purpose of the guidelines are to protect you and your board from costly mistakes as a non-profit. The majority of these compliance items are required by the IRS for all 501(c)3 non-profit organizations. Hillsborough County Council, Florida PTA, and National PTA are here to support and guide you with the best practices and policies to ensure that all communications and actions align with National PTA's vision, mission, values, and policies and comply with applicable federal and state laws. Please make sure your contact information is up to date in Memberhub so you do not miss out on any important updates.
Remember that you must pay your unit's State Monthly Membership Dues through your MemberHub site or via check with a MEMBERSHIP DUES PAYMENT FORM, on a monthly basis every month memberships are sold.
Your Annual County Dues are due once a year by October 1, paid by credit card at our Memberhub Store or by check through the mail to: HCCPTA - Membership Dues, PO Box 273324, Tampa, FL 33688.
To be considered active with Florida PTA - units must pay for at least 10 members.
If you are past due, and are planning on participating in a program such as Reflections, or applying for a grant or award, you must make payment asap to bring your unit back into compliance or you will be ineligible.
Florida PTA has updated the bylaw template for all local units in 2022. If you have not submitted updated bylaws this school year, please do so now. The Florida PTA bylaw template includes changes allowing virtual meetings and also less restriction of VP positions. Bylaws MUST be updated at a minimum of every 3 years to remain in compliance, but should be reviewed annually and updated when the state updates the template, so that your unit is able to function to the best of its ability. The fillable online form is available HERE. For more information on Bylaws and Standing Rules, please go HERE.
