As we have reminded members for the past month, SRC is required to inform Rotary International by the end of June how many dues-paying members we have. The club Board agreed some time ago to cease covering dues payments for people who do not pay on time.
If you want to be among those who are counted as active members, you need to submit your check for six-month or full-year dues by June 1 so our club officials have sufficient time to handle the bookkeeping chores involved in that reporting process.
Please be sure your checks, made payable to “SRC Rotary,” are mailed in time to reach Treasurer Murray Forth by the deadline. The mailing address is P.O. Box 71, East Greenbush, NY 12061. (Please enter “dues payment” in the memo line of your check.)
As announced several time, dues remain at just $175 per individual member or $350 for “Family” or “Corporate” group memberships covering an unlimited number of members (although such entities have only a single vote on matters coming before the membership). If it is easier for you, dues may be paid in two equal installments, no later than June 1 and December 1. The initial partial payment for individuals is only $87.50, or $175 for “Family” and “Corporate” groups.
As explained in our Club Bylaws: “Club annual dues will be based on dues levels set by Rotary International and District 7190 plus a Club membership fee of $20 above RI and District dues for first-year members and $30 above RI and District dues for all members after their first year. A $5 deduction from each member’s dues will become an annual contribution to the Rotary Foundation. All club fees are subject to modification by subsequent votes of the membership. Fees are payable annually no later than the first day of June, or semiannually no later than the first day of June and no later than the first day of December. Per Rotary International regulations, a portion of each payment shall be applied to each member’s subscription to the RI official magazine.”
Thank you for making sure our membership status stays strong as we continue our many community and global services in an ongoing effort to aid humanity.
