AGO National Council Sets New Dues Rates

The AGO National Council has established new dues rates for all dues categories. The new rates will be reflected on the April 1 renewal notices that AGO Headquarters will send to current chapter members renewing for the 2015-2016 membership year. The new rates are $100 for Regular members; $75 for Special members; $40 for Student members; and $75 for Partners. These rates reflect a $3 increase in each membership category, with $2 being retained by each chapter and $1 allocated to National Headquarters. The new rates will take effect on April 1 for those who join the Guild for the first time either as Chapter members or as Independent members, or who reinstate as either Chapter members or Independent members after their memberships have lapsed.

Separately, the National Council has authorized the National Headquarters to initiate a “rolling membership year” for those who are joining a chapter for the first time or reinstating after their membership has lapsed. This means that a member’s expiration date will be one year from the date on which the member joined; i.e., on the anniversary of the join date. Under this plan, all current chapter members will retain their July 1-June 30 membership year as long as they renew by September 1. For new and reinstating members, however, the membership year will commence on the first of the month in which the member joins the Guild. Independent members, like TAO subscribers, have always followed a rolling membership year and will continue to do so.

    I would also ask when the last time our salary guidelines were addressed and updated.
