One topic that we need to discuss is what will be our policy toward members who become delinquent ontheir dues. The website provides us with current information about who is current and who is not. It also sends out invoices and reminders automatically to let members know when dues are payable, and multiple reminders to pay. It can also automatically change a members status after a specified period of delinquency.
One of our goals in establishing this website was to automate more administrative functions, both to create consistency across the membership, and to reduce the administrative burden on the Board. This requires that we implement policies within the configuration of the website. Up to this point, we have been fairly casual about dues with some members paying two quarters at the same time (usually at least one of which is delinquent. Nobody pays ahead!) This issue needs some discussion and agreement among the membership.
