September 2015 Dues Increase

At the Board meeting in St Louis in March 2015,the Board of Directors reluctantly voted to increase the dues to our Society. It has been almost ten years since the dues were last increased. During that time printing and mailing costs have increased. Also contributing to the cash deficient last fiscal year has been the loss of over 300 members for various reasons since 2006. Those 300+ members alone contributed to a cash shortfall of over $10,000 in loss of dues payments. While regretful, the Board members felt that the benefits of Society membership outweigh the increased cost of membership.
