31st Distrct PTA Membership Information


TOTEM Online Membership


Steps for Units:

  1. Invite your leaders—you can request your invitation using this link –
    1. Confirm your PTA/PTSA information specifically your Dues amount (pre filled information is from California State PTA records, but should be confirmed by local leaders)
    2. Connect your bank account –
    3. Authenticate the bank account (If the treasurer signed your PTA up then the President authenticates, if the President signed up then the Treasurer authenticates — or other two officers)
    4. Personalize your site –

    Once these steps are done, if a unit/council and district are also signed up then California State PTA will contact the District President and authorize the unit being turned on.  When the unit is activated they receive an email and so does the council (if in council) and the district and the e-membership team at California State PTA
