Life membership in the New Jersey Parents/Teachers Association is an honorary membership that is presented in recognition of outstanding and faithful service performed in the interest and welfare of children and youth.The recipient need not be a member of a PTA; he/she could be a teacher, principal, superintendent, board of education member, crossing guard, any person who has given outstanding services to children and youth.
This honorary membership does not carry with it the right to vote, make motions, or serve as an officer in the local PTA, unless the recipient has a membership in that local PTA.It does, however, entitle the Life Member the privilege of attending the annual state convention as a voting delegate and to attend one of the highlights of the convention – the Life Membership dinner.There, the life member has the opportunity to meet other life members from all over the state and to hear their success stories.
The honor of the Life Membership is something the recipient should carry with much honor, distinction, and pride.When presented with a Life Membership, the recipient receives a one-year subscription to the New Jersey Parent-Teacher (the official bulletin of the New Jersey PTA).
The honor of a Life Membership is presented with the approval of a local PTA, PTSA, SEPTA, a County Council or the New Jersey PTA. (Note: source of funds must be approved by the PTA/PTSA making the presentation.) An Honorary Life Membership may not be purchased by an individual. Anytime is a good time to say “Thank You” -
