Board Approves Modest Increase of Dues and Workshop Fees
During the July meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board approved a $5.00 increase in all dues categories. The new dues starting this fall will be $20.00 for an Individual, $25.00 for a Couple or Family, and $40.00 for Contributing and Business Members.
Also, during last January's meeting, the Board voted to increase Workshop Fees to $25.00 for Members, and $45.00 for non-members ($25.00 plus a one-year Individual Membership).
The CVA has been more active and holding more shows at different venues. In general, expenses have been going up---including hospitality, awards, and insurance---and the bank balance has been declining. The Board could not remember when the dues or workshop fees had been increased in the past, if at all. The Board believes the dues and fee increases are modest and more than offset by the values received for each.
