2017 Early Bird Campaign Set to Start, Save $5

Time to pay 2017 dues is approaching. The Early Bird Campaign starts on September 1st. At the Dominion Convention held in June, a motion was passed to raise the per capita both this year and next. Per Capita is the portion of dues the branch has to send to Command each year. The increases mean our branch dues need to also go up. The executive has discussed this and feels the dues will rise once, this year, and not next year. The increase will not take effect until after the General Meeting on September 20th even though the increased payment to Command will start on September 1st. So, if you wish to save $5 on your 2017 dues, pay before September 20th.
