Membership Matters!

The 2016-2017 school year may be in the last quarter but membership is year round and ongoing! We need everyone's help to grow membership to show we have the powerful voice that is needed today to advocate for the health and well-being of all children. Can you imagine the impact we would have if we rallied together and every member added their +ONE?

Who is your +ONE?
Share your unit's Online Register Link and the +ONE graphic to promote this campaign via email and social media. It only takes a small effort by many to make a difference. Current Members +ONE = Powerful Voice for the children of New York State!

Membership Dues should be paid monthly to the state office as you acquire new members ($4.00 per member). Please submit with the Dues Payment Slips (word doc). Please add your Unit Code number and Credit Voucher number if applicable so your payments are credited properly.
