Join Skandia or renew your yearly membership!
Skandia is increasing dues for the first time in over a decade. Starting January 1st 2014, individual memberships will cost $30/year with an emailed newsletter and $40/year if you want a printed newsletter mailed to you. Additional members sharing the same physical address are eligible for a new discounted membership fee of $25/year (digital newsletter only). The 18 to 23 age membership category remains $15/year, and youth memberships are still free.
Individuals under 18 may attend our dance classes and Friday night dances for free, as well. Skandia has put a lot of effort into having events and activities carry their own costs. This decision to increase dues was prompted by an ongoing annual deficit, where our dues do not cover all the boring but important membership expenses like insurance, newsletter, promotion, postage, telephone, Web, fees, licenses, supplies, etc. The deficit this past year was $2000. In addition to increasing dues, Skandia has focused on a number of these ongoing expenses. For example, Skandia chose to terminate its long-standing $500/year phone number in favor of an Internet phone number that can be more easily managed.
Skandia’s new phone number is (425) 954-5262. Messages left at that number can be moderated from any computer and even be forwarded as attachments to emails to be dealt with more effectively.
