Centennial Fund

Board of Directors Decision–10/8/2018


Dues and Fees

1.       Defer a membership Dues increase until we gather sufficient trend data from any adverse impacts of imposing a mailing Fee.
2.   Apply a $10 US annual Fee for domestic mailed APJ. Members who wish to have a mailed copy of APJ (handling and mail delivery) will have the Fee applied at next renewal. (Total cost of membership will be $40 annually)
-Members who do not have an email address on our contact list will be charged the added Fee at next renewal.
3.   Reduce the Dues for non-US members who elect to forgo a mailed APJ to:  $30 US annually (same as domestic members)
-For non-US members who wish to continue receiving a mailed APJ, annual Dues will remain as currently assessed, reflecting international postal rates (Canada-$40; all others-$60.)
The changes go into effect on January 1st,2019 to be applied to new members immediately and existing members on their normal renewal dates. Dues and Fees will be reviewed by your Board, and revised as necessary, each year.
LIFE MEMBERS: There are no changes to your membership. However, by separate email we will ask you if you will voluntarily elect to forgo the printed/mailed version of the APJ to save us $$.
