2019-2020 PTA Membership Cards

Yellow Jacket Families,

For those that have already joined PTSA you have probably noticed you did not receive a membership card in your SHS packet. That was not an oversight. In years past we have been provided paper membership cards through East Cobb Council of PTAs (ECCC) in conjunction with District 9 PTA and Georgia PTA. This year the entities that govern our PTA elected to go paperless and that led to several changes we wanted to inform you of here:

– In the past our PTA had to submit monthly membership numbers to GA PTA and pay dues based on that membership ($3.75/member). We did that via paper form and snail mail. This year, paper/by mail is not an option and we have to upload our membership numbers into a service called MemberHub online.

– Once your info (name, email address, type of membership – we share nothing else) has been uploaded you will receive an email from MemberHub with a receipt for the $3.75 (the portion of your $5 membership that goes towards GA PTA dues).

– You will find a link in that email where you can go and print your PTA Membership card. While that card is not needed to access PTA programs and benefits at SHS it may be needed to access ECCC PTA member discounts which can be found HERE.

– If your student or spouse joined SHS PTSA but their email address was not provided you will not receive a receipt or a link for their membership card. This is because MemberHub has a flaw – it will only allow us to use an email once so we can’t assign the same email to two (or more) parents or students. You can email us if you’d like to add their email so they can print their own card. Again, the PTA Membership cards are not needed to access SHS PTSA benefits, only if you want to use the member discounts linked here and above.

– Please note: Seniors who joined SHS PTSA in order to apply for our scholarship in the spring do not need a membership card to apply. Seniors, make sure to join though because we award $10,000 in scholarships. Go HERE to join.

– If you did not get a chance to join our organization at NewBeez or Open House, there’s still time! You can join online HERE or print out our paper formand turn it into the front office with your payment.

We appreciate your support of PTSA! Want to know what we do with the funds raised through membership and at our annual Arts & Crafts Show? Go HERE to learn more about the over $20,000 we provided in support to students, families, teachers, and events around our school during 2018-2019 SY.

Thank you for your support,
SHS PTSA Executive Committee
