TEXAS PTA HONORARY LIFE MEMBERSHIP:
Since 1909, the Texas PTA has made available the Texas PTA Honorary Life Membership as one of the highest honors presented to individuals for outstanding service to children and youth. The recipient does not have to be a PTA member nor must the service for which the honor has been bestowed be connected with the PTA. The only requirement for receiving a Texas PTA Honorary Life Membership is that the recipient is making or has made a worthwhile contribution to the well-being of children and youth.
NOTE: Recipients of the Texas PTA Honorary Life Membership are exempt from paying the Texas PTA portion of dues for only one Local PTA of their choice per membership year . If they have received more than one Honorary Life Membership, they may register as a Texas PTA Life Member with as many Local PTAs as they have Honorary Texas PTA Life Memberships. Texas PTA Honorary Life Memberships do not carry with them automatic rights to vote or to hold office in any PTA. In order to participate actively in PTA, an honorary life member must enroll in a Local PTA by paying the local and National PTA dues and having his/her name included on the membership list sent to the Texas PTA Office.
