SeaAA members approve change in annual membership period

Seattle Area Archivist members,

The results are in and the membership voted to adopt the proposed change to the constitution to shift the membership year from October to October to January to December. Here’s what’s new for members:

Annual membership fees ($15 for individuals and $10 for students) for 2014 are due by January 15, 2014.
Payments are being accepted this October, November and December, as we transition to the new schedule. 2015 membership fees will not be due until January 2015.

A membership renewal reminder will be sent to all SeaAA members in late December or early January.
Memberships not paid by January 15, 2014, will receive one reminder to renew byJanuary 31, 2014 or be dropped from membership.

Membership fees may be paid online via SeaAA’s new PayPal account or via mail using the PDF form. Both can be found on the membership page of this website.
