STC Prorated Dues Explained
According to the prorating schedule for STC annual dues, new members joining in 2003 pay full dues ($125), and their memberships extend to December 31. During the first renewal period, prorated "credit" is extended to all new members based on the month they joined the Society.
For example, members who joined in February will receive a 10 percent (or $12.50) credit on their first renewal, members who joined in March will receive a 20 percent ($25) credit, and so on. These credits will be deducted from the 2004 renewal rate of $140.
As part of STC's annual fall membership drive, new members joining in November and December 2003 will be credited with full dues paid for 2004. The credits will appear on new members' renewal invoices, which will be mailed in late November. The table lists monthly credits and renewal rates for new members.
Note: The STC office will apply all credits at the time of renewal. New members should not adjust their initial dues payment of $125 by the amount of credit they anticipate receiving.
Procedures for STC's 2004 Election
The annual STC election will be held in early 2004, and only members who have paid their dues by February 28, 2004, will be eligible to vote. An option on the dues renewal forms and new membership applications for 2004 allows members to receive their election materials by e-mail. In March, members who selected this option will be e-mailed the slate, candidate biographies, and voting instructions. Members who did not select this option will receive these materials by first-class mail. The election closes April 15, 2004.
Be sure to renew by February 28 to have a say in STC's future!
