Notice is hereby given of two motions to amend ERCS bylaw 1.3. Membership Fee. These two motions will be moved, discussed and voted upon at the General meeting of the Edmonton Radio Control Society on October 29 2014.
Moved that by-law 1: section 1.3 be amended by the addition of Paragraph c: as follows.
"Provided that the full field development fee is paid at the same time and a valid MAAC membership is in effect, first time memberships taken out after September 1st will be at the full set annual fee and shall be in effect until December 31st of the following calendar year."
Rationale: The purpose of this amendment is to bring ERCS membership fee periods into line with MAAC practices and to encourage new members joining in the final third of the year.
Moved that the existing paragraph 1.3.b which reads:
"New memberships taken out after September 1 of the calendar year will be at one half of the set membership fee, plus presentation of a current MAAC membership card or the appropriate fee."
be amended to read:
"Membership fees for Existing and former members renewing their membership after September 1 of the calendar year will be at one half of the set membership fee, plus presentation of a current MAAC membership card or the appropriate fee."
Rationale: Clarity re new and renewing members.
