Important Membership Announcement
For those who were not able to attend this past Saturday’s Guild Meeting, President Don Wilson presented a high level overview of the 2017/2018 Guild Budget, the first year we have had a complete budget created for the Guild. The comparison revealed the deficit that we will experience barring any financial windfalls. As required in our By-Laws, the Board of Directors (BOD) made a recommendation to the assembled members to increase the Guild Membership dues by $25 annually. The recommendation was voted on by the membership, numbering over 70 at this meeting, and passed unopposed. The commitment was to use our communication portals (Email, Web page and Facebook) to get this information out to all Guild Members including those who were in attendance at Saturday’s February Meeting.
What this means is that effective March 1, 2018, new membership in the Alabama Woodworkers Guild will be levied at $100 per calendar year (January to December). Any existing member who has not renewed their annual membership by end of the February 28th renewal grace period, will be required to pay the new membership fee of $100. Those who have already paid their 2018 renewal fees, or pay them by February 28, 2018, will not have to pay the increase until January, 2019.
Effective March 1, 2018, all Membership Badges not displaying the 2018 Paid Decal, will be removed from the Badge Board.
Access to the Woodworkers Education Center (WEC) will be denied by the On Duty Supervisor until delinquent 2018 dues have been paid by PayPal, check or cash.
