We will once again have a membership drive for the last quarter of the 2017-2018 fiscal year beginning February 1. The reinstatement fee of $20 to renew membership for the remainder of the year will be waived. In addition, the reinstated member and new or renewing members will have their membership end date extended to April 30, 2019.
SAWE is going to try a new policy to help curb the workload of the Executive Director, Ron Fox, and the Secretary of Finance, Kim Brown. Beginning February 1, 2018 membership renewal and new or reinstated membership should be done online from our website (https://www.sawe.org/about/membership/application).
If the Chapter Treasurer or his designee wishes to collect fees, it becomes the responsibility of the chapter to compile the records for means of collection and for the distribution of the funds either to or from the Secretary of Finance.
