Membership Dues Updates
Greetings members and potential new members!
The issue of membership dues for new members / renewing members / past due members has been brought up frequently by the outgoing council, and the new council has decided to follow up on their predecessor's recommendations (in full accordance with the club Bylaws: Article III, Section 6)
STARTING OCTOBER 1st, 2014:
- New Member dues
The first year dues will increase from $30 to $50. Membership renewal dues ($30), will be due on the anniversary of their membership enrollment date.
- Renewing Members
Great news! Renewal dues will remain at $30/year, and should be remitted on or before the anniversary of your membership.
- Lapsed Members
Members who have lapsed in their membership and are more than [i]three months[/i] past due will be assessed a $20 late fee, putting them back at $50 for that year. The renewal dues will then return to $30/year thereafter, unless there is another lapse in payment.
I believe I have also finally remedied the problem where an 'lapsed' member could not log in to renew their membership. Unfortunately, it means more work for the Membership Chair (Chad) and the web site guy (me), but it will make things easier for our renewing members.
If you're thinking of becoming a member, I'd recommend doing it before October 1st, so you can attend the Members Only BBQ being held October 3rd - 5th! See you on the trail!
