Grace's Law HB 2655, which criminalizes cyberbullying, passed in the House (94-1) and in the Senate unanimously!!!!   Thank you for your calls, letters and emails to our legislators to make sure our voices were heard on this issue!!    Governor Justice signed it into law and is effective June 8th.  We couldn't have done it without our PTA members support!     
Congratulations to our
National PTA Grant Winner!
Congratulations to Eagle School Intermediate PTA!!!
We have a West Virginia winner for the National PTA Connected Digital Families Community Event Grant - $1000! This grant opportunity was sponsored by Facebook!! We look forward to hearing about your upcoming event!   Local units to need to apply for these available grants!!!
Pay Your Membership Dues Online!
If you attended the Regional Training in your area, you learned about the new Online Payment option for paying membership dues to the State PTA! Simply click on the link above and you will redirected to our PTBoard website! On the left side of the page, click on "Form & Payment" and follow the instructions! Payments are still due by the 15th of each month.

Your local unit pays State & National PTA dues for each membership sold to West Virginia PTA.
The total cost due is $3.75 per member and typically your treasurer would fill out a membership report form and mail a check into WV PTA for the amount due (depending on the memberships sold).

This year, we are providing this new online option to make the process as simple as possible!
Of course, if you want to continue mailing in the Local Unit Membership Report form with your check to West Virginia PTA (PO Box 3557, Parkersburg, WV 26103) you are welcome to do so! In fact, if you want to fill out the Report form online using the link above and continue mailing the check portion, that's fine too. We are hoping that all units will begin to use the online option for both the form and payment to improve efficiency.

Click Here to download the Membership Report Form if you plan to continue mailing in your payment. Your completed form and check are due by the 15th of each month (only if memberships were sold for that month).

Email our membership chair, Rose Rossana if you have any questions at membership@westvirginiapta.org.
