WHO MAY TAKE THE INITIAL STEPS TO ORGANIZE A PTA? Anyone may take the first step toward organizing a PTA. When parents and other citizens take the initiative in organizing a PTA, they should enlist the support of the school principal, superintendent, and several teachers, if the PTA will be affiliated with a school. REQUIREMENTS FOR ORGANIZATION In order for a group to form a PTA, the following are required: 1. Have 10 individuals willing to join. However, for long-term success at least 25 members are recommended. 2. Be committed to the Purpose, Mission, basic policies and guiding principles of the PTA. 3. Have individuals willing to serve as officers. STEPS FOR ORGANIZING Contact the Montana PTA Office at 406-628-9007 or email@example.com.
