Announcing an upcoming Membership Committee Meeting!
When: Thursday May 29th at 7pm
Where: Hallway of the Loom
One important topic of conversation will be the recent implementation of the annual payment and how it will to apply to our low-income members. The annual fee stands at $25/ year for 4 years, should that be applied to all members? should members who can prove low income pay a different amount?
If you have an opinion, please come by to discuss further so that it can be voted on during the June 2nd general meeting!
(If you have a strong opinion yet are unable to attend, email email@example.com and we will include your thoughts in our discussion)
