Since its organization in 1897, New York State PTA has long been recognized as a powerful force working for children. Did you know that when you join the PTA, you immediately become a member of both the state and national associations as well as your local unit? It is through membership in the New York State and National PTAs that you, your unit, and, most importantly, your children will benefit. You will add your voice to nearly 300,000 members.

There are several ways to become a member of PTA. Click here to join now!  You can search for your local unit and/or Join Empire State PTSA, our statewide unit.

“Our association is the best voice to make sure that we’re being heard and that our children are getting the resources they need.” See why PTA is so important to parents.
