We’ve talked about it for years and now it is going to happen for the upcoming membership year, which starts on July 1, 2019.
We have long sought to reduce our most expensive item, our newsletter postage costs, while at the same time accommodating the needs of our membership. How will it work? Starting with the Summer 2019 issue—the first newsletter of the upcoming membership year—you will have two options:
You can choose to receive an electronic version of the Quarterly via our website for the same membership dues of $30 per year. OR,
You can opt to continue receiving hard copy through the mail for $35 per year. The additional $5 will help cover printing and mailing costs.
The renewal form inserted with your newsletter will show the two membership dues options in the middle of the form. Just circle your choice. Our website renewal form will also allow you to indicate your choice.
It’s worth mentioning that HSGA member dues has held steady at $30 per year for over 16 years, starting in 2002. Printing and mailing costs, of course, have steadily ramped up over that same time period.
