February Dinner Meeting
Notice of Changes Voted in by the Membership-February 18, 2015 Dinner Meeting
The membership was offered an opportunity for discussion of both the $5 fee for non-dinner guests and the one-time “processing fee” for new members. Many members gave their opinions on these issues.
The membership voted overwhelmingly to APPROVE the $5 admission fee for members not willing or able to order dinners. This $5 fee is effective immediately and will be enforced at the door. Even with a “no” vote from members who were unhappy with the fee, but did not attend the February dinner meeting, the result would have been the same. It was a substantial majority for a “yes” vote.
If the $5 fee is a hardship for any member, please contact your President or Vice President with the assurance of discretion and we will address the matter.
The membership also voted on the one-time processing fee for new members and it will no longer be charged. Any new member who paid the fee may contact the club treasurer and request a refund.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Your board is now able to put this behind us and work on the many important conservation issues that we are engaged in.
