Who has the most PEP??
The PTA/PTSA Excellence Program — better known as PEP — provides PTA/PTSA units with a way to streamline unit requirements and provide a points system for units who complete the required tasks. PEP helps your unit stay in good standing and encourages unit growth and participation. There are monthly PEP requirements along with those due by October 1st:
o Submit signed copy of Bylaws Acknowledgement form (found on MH-unit presidents hub)
o Submit signed copy of Financial Best Practices form(found on MH-unit presidents hub)
o Submit Unit Calendar of activities and meetings
o Submit Reflections Chair contact info
Whenever you are sending council or MI PTA a document or submitting something that is part of the PEP program please cc the following email address - PEP@livoniaptsacouncil.org
Please check the PEP spreadsheet throughout the year and make sure that you are getting points for the things you should be getting points for, don't wait until the end of the year. Every month we will upload a current view of the PEP spreadsheet onto the website.
Membership Dues & Member Hub
September is the first month that most units will pay Michigan PTA and Council membership dues.
To pay your membership dues to council all you need to do is use the Membership form, found on Member Hub or the Council website, and remit $.50 per member to council. Please mail a copy of the form and payment to the address listed on the form. We DO NOT need a copy of your membership roster. Council must receive this by the 28th so leave time for mailing.
To pay your membership dues to MI PTA, this year you have 2 options. You can mail MI PTA a check like you have done in the past with a form. ($5.50 per member) New Address:
P.O. Box 510535
Livonia, Michigan 48151
Or you can pay your dues online thru Member Hub. There is a new button in the admin console called STATE PAYMENTS. Your President or Treasurer can pay dues for all members entered during that month (online members and check/cash members) by clicking on the Send via echeck button. There is a $1.00 fee to do this.
If you have questions about this please let us know so we can help you.
