So why become a member?
Your membership fee shows your commitment to the National, Maryland, and Mutual Elementary PTA.  The most important reason is because children love when we’re involved their lives!

What do my membership fees cover?
The majority of the fee is divided between our National and State dues ($2.25 – National PTA & $2.00 – State PTA) and a nominal amount supports our local Calvert County Council of PTAs (CCCPTA). A small portion of your dues (approximately 50 – 60 CENTS) helps to fund the administrative costs of the MES PTA like paper/staples for the many flyers we send home.

If I become a member does that mean I have to volunteer at school?
No, you are not required to volunteer if you are a PTA member. Of course, we welcome everyone that would like to volunteer.

I cannot volunteer at school but I would like to help, what are my options and do I need to be a member?
You are not required to be a PTA member to help out. There are many ways to volunteer from home or at school. We may need supplies cut out or constructed, baked goods prepared, paper collated, help with special events, or just phone calls made. All help for our school is appreciated.

If I become a member does that mean I have to go to meetings?
You are not required to attend the General Membership meetings, but we encourage parents and staff to attend. You will receive up to date information at the meetings and also vote on budget decisions. Parents are also welcome to attend executive board meetings, however, only board members may vote at these monthly executive board meeting.

If I am NOT a member does that mean I can NOT go to the general membership meetings?
You do NOT have to be a member to attend a meeting. However, you must be a member to vote on budget or other issues.

Can I become a member at anytime?
Yes, although we typically run our membership drive from September through November, you can join at anytime.

I volunteer, but am not a member. May I attend the volunteer appreciation breakfast or gathering?
We welcome everyone and anyone that helps out at Mutual. You do NOT have to be a PTA member to participate in any of our volunteer appreciation events.
