Express Your Opinion on an Installment Plan for Membership Dues

Here is your chance to express an opinion regarding payment of the $100 membership fee for NEAFCS - MN Affiliate. Note, the $100 is split two ways with $70 going to National and $30 remaining in our MN Affiliate treasury.
One idea that has been suggested to us is that an option would be provided so that the membership fee could be paid in 2 or 3 installments. That may help members spread out professional dues committments. The MAEE Treasurer, Cindy Peterson, will be sending out MAEE and Section Membership Dues information later summer with a preferred return time of September 1. Total dues would need to be in by December 1 to meet the necessary paperwork due to National December 22. So, payment could be spread over about three months. Options might be:

- 2 payments of $50 each
- 3 payments; 2 - $30 and 1 - $40

Please comment before July 25. The board meets July 30 with this on the agenda. Thank you for your input!
