Reminder: NCAFS Member Dues Changed
From NCAFS Treasurer, Kelsey Lincoln —
It is that time of year to renew your membership for NCAFS (or join if you are a new member). As many of you are aware, we voted as a chapter at the 2017 Annual Business Meeting to change the annual dues from $7.00 to $15.00 beginning September 1, 2017. The membership fee for NCAFS had not been changed in quite some time and this small increase will have a large impact on the financial security of our chapter and will allow us to continue fund student travel, assist chapters on a national scale, and help with small projects across the state.
You can renew your membership through the AFS website, at our annual meeting, or anytime via the NCAFS website with PayPal (mailed payments also accepted). Payments for the 2018 calendar year will be accepted September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018.
To renew membership/join through NCAFS website or annual meeting:
This is the best option for this transition year. The NCAFS website will have the correct invoice or you can renew your membership online or at the Chapter meeting, business as usual.
To renew membership/join through Parent Society AFS:
Due to a delay in the timing of changing our dues with the parent society, the invoice you have already received from AFS includes the old membership fee ($7.00). Because of this, you can
a) pay the $7.00 online when you renew your AFS membership and send me a check/cash for the remaining $8.00 (click here for mailing address) or give me the $8.00 at the 2018 annual meeting or
b) call AFS and have them send you a corrected invoice for $15 for NCAFS before you submit your money.
I hope this will not be too much of an inconvenience for anyone. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me (919-618-7945) if you have any questions.
