How are Dues Structured and Processed?
At our January 16, 2021 BOD meeting action approved small changes requested by the secretary and treasurer in order to make tracking and processing payment of membership dues more manageable for our volunteer staffed organization.
We have a unified dues structure, with cost of membership listed on the membership application. There are three options for dues for all members. One year memberships are $25, two years $45, and 5 years $100, your preference of term. As one can envision from the long list of renewals managing invoicing and collecting dues with most members having one-year renewals even with online tools can be daunting for volunteers, thus discounts for longer terms are offered.
Renewal of dues are based on January 1st. New members who apply during the year will have their first year dues prorated based on a one year membership. Those applying after July 1st receive the two year membership prorated for 1 year and the appropriate number of months.
There are still two categories of membership that impart basically the same level of member benefits. In brief regular members are those members who have backgrounds in the healing arts while associate members are those who do not but have an interest in the healing arts. See our by-laws for full details. When membership applications are submitted the membership committee assigns the membership type based on the information provided in the application.
