ANNUAL DUES APPEAL - A THIRD OF THE WAY ACHIEVED
We are slowly returning to “normal” after two years of following different local/regional/provincial Public Health requirements. As 2021 financial and statistics reports are being received, we have a better understanding of the impact the pandemic had on conference life, where certain conferences have managed to continue and even thrive, while others went dormant. This latter situation implies that some conferences are not in a position to cover their annual dues.
Since multiple conferences are not in a position to cover their dues, this ultimately has an impact on the National Council of Canada revenues since a significant portion of these dues cover the day-to-day operations. Based on current information received, there is a contributions gap in the order of $35,000.
We are therefore reaching out to conferences and councils that are capable of providing some financial coverage for sister conferences who would not be in a position to pay their annual dues. Funds can be sent to National via the donation portal:
Or by sending a cheque to the National office at: 2463 Innes Road, Ottawa ON K1B 3K3
THANK YOU TO CONFERENCES AND COUNCILS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED SO FAR!
