Annual Dues, Article I, Section 2 state that dues are $5 to become a member of NextGen.
The Executive Board met October 12, 2018 and recommends raising dues to $10/year.
The size of the club and changing technology make it imperative we upgrade to a more user-friendly system. Right now, we use three difference programs for club use. The cost of the new software is approximately $100 per month. The costs must be covered by raising dues. The new system is Wild Apricot and seems to fit all our needs. There is an app available for smart phones and everything would be in one place. The RCSC has no software available for Clubs.
Dennis Weir made a motion to raise dues to $10/year. It was seconded by Linda Johnson.
There was a discussion regarding the cost. Some members said we should not raise dues and pay for it out of our club’s budget. After the discussion and the motion that was made a vote was made by raising hands of who was in favor and who opposed. The tellers counted the votes. 41 were in favor of raising the dues, 13 were opposed. The motion carried and will be effective 1/1/2019.
The meeting adjourned at 8:00 p.m.
