SAS have revised their constitution to cater for clubs such as ours who have a large social component.
The revised fees structure will be applied with effect from our year end May 2018 and will be included in your annual membership fees.
The applicable percentages by membership category is as per the extract from the SAS constitution reflected here under, namely:
- 1.1. Family Membership
Being a member, his or her spouse and their children under 19 (nineteen) years of age, 150% of the TAS per Family Membership
- 1.2. Ordinary Membership & Life Membership
Being a single member, the full amount of the TAS per Ordinary or Life Membership.
- 1.3. Student Membership
Being a single member of a registered education institution, 30% of the TAS per student member at a Tertiary Institution, otherwise 20% of the TAS per student member.
- 1.4. Youth Membership
Being a single member, under 19 (nineteen) years of age and not being a member of a registered educational institution, 50% of the TAS per member.
- 1.5. Social Membership
Being a member of an affiliated club who does not ever participate or who is not in any way involved in the activities of sailing, 40% of the TAS per member.
- 1.6. Temporary Membership
Being a single membership valid for the duration of a specified event, 30% of the TAS.
- 1.7. Each club member who is not classified and cannot be classified in 4.1.1, 4.1.2, 4.1.3, 4.1.4, 4.1.5, 4.1.6 above
The full amount of the TAS multiplied by the amount the club member pays in Club subscription and divided by the subscription amount paid by a Full Member of that club, subject to a minimum of 40% of the full amount of the TAS.
The actual amount to be levied as well as the membership fee increases which are currently being debated by your general committee will be communicated during March once agreement has been reached.
