Reduce late membership dues
payment "grace period" from 90
days to 60 days.
In the year 2012, 60 days is a very
generous period of time to complete
payment of membership dues. Al-
lowing 90 days is unnecessary and
causes additional administrative ex-
penses for the organization to re-
send notices of unpaid dues.
With these changes, the bylaws
will be consistent with the de facto
environment in which the CTCPA
operates, more than a century after
these guidelines were originally
created. These changes will en-
hance operations and allow for
future organizational development.
With regard to accelerating the mem-
bership dues payment period, some
members may find it disadvantageous
to remit their dues in a faster time
frame than they are accustomed to.
