Conference Decisions

District Dues Increase

The Board proposed a District dues increase of $10.00 per member per year. Five dollars ($5.00) of the increase will go to the general operating budget and five dollars ($5.00) to the conference budget. The dues increase was adopted with a unanimous vote. This is the first increase since 2008 (10 years); the Board has kept it as minimal as possible.
