NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- At its May meeting, the LWVNR Board accepted a proposal to increase dues as of July 1, 2016 primarily to cover our fair-share payments to the National, New York State, and Westchester Leagues. These payments total $54.00 for individuals and $81.00 for households annually. Our local dues ($50 individual, $75 family) have not been raised for many years and no longer cover these obligations. The NR Board’s proposal, which must be approved by the membership in attendance at the Annual Meeting, sets dues at $60.00 for individuals and $85.00 for households. Members can still pay the old rate if they send in their checks before July 1, 2016.
The League depends on the work and financial support of all of its members to carry outs its programs. Please fill out and mail the coupon in this issue with your check to the League of Women Voters of New Rochelle to join or renew membership. In doing so, you will also become a member of the county, state, and national Leagues with access to members-only online resources.
