New York Upstate Chapter Comment Period on Percentage-Based Dues is Open

A membership comment period has opened today (October 13, 2017) to gather input on a proposal to index the New York Upstate Chapter of the APA’’s dues at 15% of the dues members pay to the National Association.

All APA chapters are required to transition to percentage-based dues at the end of this year. The 15% index rate dues are summarized in the table below. Please note these are base APA memberships, exclusive of AICP dues.

Under our bylaws, a dues increase is enacted by a majority vote of the Chapter Board. We are required to hold a formal comment period of a minimum of 30 days. The board will hold its vote on the change at its November 17 meeting.

An article about the change to percentage-based dues was published in our most recent newsletter. The newsletter can be accessed here: http://mailchi.mp/a8d2e871b1e9/ny-upstate-apa-chapter-newsletter
