National PTA is composed of 54 state congresses and more than 20,000 local units in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the Department of Defense Schools in Europe. State PTAs, such as California State PTA, are the liaison between the local PTA and National PTA, helping each to function effectively.
A portion of the membership dues from each member (known as per capita) is sent through channels to the council, district, state and National PTA. These pass-through monies are used to support those levels of PTA which, in return, support the unit with leadership, training, advocacy and other needed services.
The National PTA Board of Directors is proposing a dues increase at the 2019 National PTA Annual Convention in June which will increase the National PTA per capita portion of dues from $2.25 to $3.75 (an increase of $1.50 or 67%) per member to begin for the next membership year starting July 1, 2019.
