PTA Council dues invoice and scholarship donation All 74 local PTAs are members of PTA Council of Howard County. The local unit pays a flat rate of $170 membership dues to PTACHC on behalf of their members. (Additionally, the locals also pay State and National dues for each member) In return, PTACHC volunteers devotes many many hours to support students, families, and schools throughout the county and focus on issues such as health/safety concerns, school curriculum, school budget issues, training for local PTA leaders, and more. Each local PTA has 2 delegates + the president who participate in monthly council meetings, giving every local PTA a voice in PTACHC.
The dues are due by Nov. 1. Scholarship donations to the scholarship fund are accepted all year. More information on scholarships is found on the scholarship committee page.
