In 2009, all of the chapters voted collectively for each chapter to pay $1/member to the National
Treasurer to pay for
Association expenses (website hosting, domain name, forum updates, etc). The membership count is based on
the number of full members on the March 1st membership list. (Associate
members are not counted).
As an example, a chapter with 20 full members and 4 Associate members might earn $500.00 in yearly dues. On March 1st, the chapter would send $20.00 to the National Treasurer.
