Good afternoon Presidents,

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Tehnaz Rutledge and I am the HCPTA membership chair for fourth district.  I would like ask for, and share some information with you as get ready to begin registration, and your membership campaigns.

1.  Please send me the email address of your current membership chairs.  I had asked this of last year's President's but to date I have only received a handful of emails.


2. Please ask your membership chairs to join the HCPTA Fourth District Membership Information Group on Facebook.  I have created this group so that membership chairs can have access to information that they can readily share with their respective groups.  Presidents may also join.  


3. Here is some information that I recently shared on the Facebook Page:


A) Membership chairs your incentives and membership cards are ready to be picked up. Incentives include: Discovery Cube coupons; Dave & Busters coupons; Aquarium of the Pacific coupons (Elementary Schools only).  


B) HCPTA membership chairs!!! Here are some great reasons to get those membership drives in gear!!!! Your Fourth District Harbor Council is giving away prizes!!!! Let your Presidents know ASAP!!!!!!
