Online Dues Paying Update 11-12-18

Dear Brother,

Brothers with an email address in the new Grand Lodge system now have the ability to pay dues online through this system. All are encouraged to do so, though not mandatory. Dues can still be paid directly to the secretary by check or cash, but online dues payment is now the preferred collection method.

Dues notices were emailed to all those with an email address in early October. . .  Members who do not have an email address received a surface mailed invoice to mail dues back to the secretary.

As per the By-Laws all dues for 2019 should be received no later than December 31, 2018 to remain in good standing with the Fraternity. Those not paid by that time will be listed by name on our Web site in January as not in good standing with the Lodge and the appendant bodies of the fraternity.

Emailed dues invoices will have a link to pay dues using a credit card. By action of the Lodge at the September Stated Meeting it was resolved that the User Convenience Fees of 2.9% +.30 cents per transaction will be added to the online payors total amount. Once your dues are paid you will receive your 2019 dues card.

Donations are accepted by the system and will be credited to the respective account described on the invoice, ie: Lodge donation, Almoner donation, and Grant Fund donation. It is hoped that members paying dues online will make generous donations to these several options.
