- A national organization, the PTA reached a high of 12 million members in the late 1960's. Today, membership hovers around the 5.5 million mark.
- Most of the members are women. All the PTA presidents had been women until 2009.
- The PTA has international branches in the United Kingdom and Japan.
- Across the nation, members roll up their sleeves for approximately 15,000 volunteer hours per year
