The voucher bill has been resurrected! Please take a few minutes to call your senator and representative and tell them to oppose the current version of HB 68!The voucher bill that was defeated earlier this session is back! Most of the language from SB 173 has been amended to HB 68. The amended version of HB 68 received a “Do Pass” in committee today and is on its way to Senate Rules tomorrow. We need you to 1. Contact the Senate Rules committee and tell them to not release HB 68 in its current form; 2. Contact your Senator and ask them to vote “No” to HB 68 in its current form (if they voted “No” to SB 173, but sure to thank them!); 3. Contact your Representative and tell them to vote “No” to the Senate’s version of HB 68.

The Georgia PTA has been listening to your feedback – and a top concern that our PTA leaders and volunteers raise is the all-too-familiar time crunch. It’s exhausting to figure out all the tools you need to engage parents and stay in good standing – online signups, fundraising apps, paper forms, mass emails, payment processing apps, cash and check, membership spreadsheets, and more. PTA units and members have also communicated to us that members want to join online and pay for their membership with credit cards. In response, Georgia PTA is excited offer online membership options and help streamline your work by providing MemberHub FREE (a $1,200 value) to all local units. MemberHub is an online tool that puts it all in one place. Georgia PTA will be using MemberHub to manage membership, allowing your members online access to their membership cards, and helping your unit stay in good standing by allowing units to upload the bylaws, audits, and 990 paperwork previously sent to the state office. To get started, MemberHub sent each PTA president a log-in email providing access to add officers, complete the orientation, and set up your site. If you haven’t heard from them, it probably means the Georgia PTA State Office does not have up-to-date contact information for your president. Please send the officer list to our state office, and we will add you to the MemberHub program. If you have any questions during this setup phase, contact our State Office at email@example.com. ...
