STRAW POLL ON CHAPTER KEY PRICE
As you all may be aware, the Chapter has spent approximately $50,000 in upgrades and repairs in the past year and a half. We are also in the process of acquiring approximately 7 acres of additional property. Membership has doubled in the past 5 years so we are also looking at expanding/upgrading our Resource Education Center for better accommodation. With all this in mind, we are asking you to vote on whether you would be willing to accept an increase in key price from the current annual charge of $50 to $60 so that we can continue to improve.
On this Straw Poll, an Individual Membership will get One (1) Vote; A
Family Membership gets Two (2) Votes. A simple YES/NO vote is all that is required.
