One of the bylaw changes that passed during this year’s Convention involved a change in the way that we collect dues from the clubs. Since the association’s inception, clubs have paid the association directly for each of their members. Beginning each April, the office staff printed rosters, billings and forms and mailed them to each club. Then the clubs were expected to collect the dues from their members and ensure that the forms and payments were received by the office no later than June so that the club could remain in good standing for the year. All club members expired on June 30, and new club members who joined during the year were required to have their dues prorated so that they would also expire on June 30.
