Annual Treasurer’s Report

The NVPS Board had kept dues constant for the past 9 years, and has increased dues for the upcoming 2017-2018 club year to $55 for Individual memberships and to $75 for family memberships, in part, to cover an increase in the honoraria presented to Competition judges & Program speakers.

Dues may be paid by check [to “NVPS”] or cash, with the fillable form from the NVPS website [under “Membership’’, from ‘’All Things NVPS’’] & given to the Membership Chair [ Kacy] at NVPS meetings, starting on 5 Sep., or a check, with the form, mailed to Tom Brett, 4216 Wynnwood Drive, Annandale, Va. 22003. You may also pay dues through PayPal, by way of the NVPS website.
