Survey Results: Given by Stacy Adams. Stacy reviewed the report generated from the survey. This report is following

the minutes. 70 responses were collected.

MemberHub: Given by Stacy Adams. Stacy reported on the new MemberHub that UTAH PTA has acquired in order to help report membership dues, number, contact information and a store component.

  • The information gathering aspect of MemberHub seems very helpful.

  • Membership dues will be seamlessly sent to the State.

  • However, the fees associated with the store seem to be more than the PTA can absorb or ask parents to pay.

  • 3.5% + .50 credit card fee. Square is 2.65% per swipe or 3.4% + .15 per manual transaction.

    Currently, the PTA is tabling this store option until there is further information on the benefits of using this store. The data collection portion of MemberHub will be utilized.

    National PTA Dues Increase: Given by Stacy Adams. The National PTA will vote on a membership fee increase at the National Convention at the end of June. Increases could range from .25, .50, .75 or 1.50. At State Convention held May 16th, the most favored option was to raise .50. We have asked all members of Hooper PTA to please go to www.utahPTA.org for a link to vote on your feelings concerning an increase. (Online vote closed on June 12th).

    T-Shirt Design: Given by Stacy Adams. Stacy will email out designs for the board to review and be prepared to vote on in the July meeting. Also Stacy will check into t-shirt printing options.

    Reflections: Given by Stacy Adams. Due to health issues, PTA needs to find a new chair for Reflections.

  • It was suggested that an incentive be given to students to participate.

    Membership: Given by Stacy Adams. PTA needs to find a Membership Chair.

    • PTA has airline tickets for a basket drawing at Back to School Night.

    • Focus with a theme and a membership drive.

      Box Tops Changes: Clipping is going away in 2020 and App/Scanning is the way Box Tops is trying to go. A lot of negative feedback from consumers so it is a slow process. PTA needs to do a better job of advertising our Box Top initiatives. Teachers were unaware when the store was happening last year. Possibly move back to doing Penny Wars rather than the store. Brought in 2015 - $2901.21 2016 - $1760.30 2017 - $1380.40 2018 - $1093.90.

      Welcome Packets: Start thinking of the paperwork that needs to be included for students at Back to School Night. PTA needs to ensure that sign-up sheets are collected and combined for best possible use of volunteers.

      2019-2020 Budget: Given by Shanae Headley. The Executive Board will present a preliminary budget at the July meeting. Members should consider activities and suggest budgetary changes.
