FY18 Dues Information

PLEASE COMMENT ON CONNECT - BEARING IN MIND THAT WE NEED AN ANSWER BEFORE 7/31
1) - OK with a dues increase for FY18
2) - Defer dues increase 
3) - Refer to full ASCLA Board for comment and vote
 
Thanks to Michael Golrick, we identified that the discussion of a planned raise of $1 per year for ASCLA dues was in the ASCLA Five Year Business Plan FY2016-2018, progress as of June 19, 2016 (page 5 chart of financial projections) - attached. It was discussed not at an Executive Committee meeting, but at the Finance Committee meeting at the Annual Conference in June 2016. The planned $1 per year increase was to take effect for the FY18 budget. 
 
I can find no minutes for the June 2016 Finance Committee meeting, At the second Board meeting at the June 2016 Conference (Atlanta), the FY17 Budget did appear on the agenda and minutes indicate that it passed.  The Business Plan does not appear on the Board Agenda or in the Board Minutes. 
 
If the the dues increase is implemented for FY18, the changes would be:

Because it appears in the business plan, I support the new dues level.

As part of the bylaws revision, I will ensure that the PROCESS of dues changes is clearly spelled out.
