Reductions, Waivers or Dederrals
If you need to work out a payment plan, ask the Board (via our Fundraising and Finance Committee) to waive some or all of your dues because of particular financial hardship or have questions about outstanding unpaid dues, please contact us and we can make sure everything is in order.
