Thank you Rod Lawless for building the beautiful table at the upper courts.
 
Invoices for 2023 will be automatically distributed the first week of November via email. The new yearly amount for the dues is $550. All invoices will be issued with this amount as the billed amount. With QuickBooks the invoice has to reflect the amount that each member is invoiced for the year. If you have been making monthly or partial payments towards your 2023 dues or if you participated in a workday activity, rest assured that your individual account does have the payments/credit posted. This was a little confusing for some of you last year and I just want to let you know upfront we do have your correct amount due posted on your account. Full payment is due by January 31. If your account is not paid in full by that date there will be a 10% ($55) charge applied. Payments can be made anytime between now and Jan. 31st.
