Leslie Luther-Fulton, Executive Assistant to the Board of Directors, has published an announcement of a membership fee increase approved by the Board recently.
Ms. Luther-Fulton writes:
At the April 16th 2011 quarterly Board meeting, a decision was made to raise International Membership Rates to USD $56 effective July 1, 2011.
This decision was very difficult, but was based upon the reality that all of our International mailings are at US First Class Postage rates, and the current International Membership Rate has been insufficient to cover the costs of the mailing for quite some time. To keep current with the recent announcement of new US postal rates, the International Membership Rate will, as of July 1, now be the same as the Sustaining US First Class postage Membership Rate. While not sufficient to cover the full cost of production and mailings, this does allow us to make significant strides toward cost recovery.
As the SCA continues progress towards publication of e-newsletters, the Board and Corporate Officers are committed to re-evaluating all Membership Rates to ensure that SCA, Inc. remains fiscally responsible as well as responsive to the needs of the Membership. We thank you for your patience as we move forward in this endeavor.
Board of Directors, SCA, Inc.
