WCNA Membership Changes for 2013

Posted by Trish Dusil on January 18, 2013 at 11:20 PM

Here's the update you've been waiting for, folks!

 

We will be implementing some changes to the club for 2013. The club is growing, awareness of the breed is growing, so we are changing with the times. WCNA is excited to offer more benefits to our members!

 

Member benefits will include a quarterly newsletter, free breeder listing that will be posted free to the public on our website and in every newsletter, a point system as well as year end awards for members that reach their goals, Prizes for attending a WCNA meet, voting privileges on officer election and perks for the club.

 

I'll post when the Paypal account is up and running to start accepting memberships.

 

1. Membership goes from January 1st through December 31st. There will be a 15 day grace period for renewal.

2. Membership dues need to be in by 2/01/13 for Spring Newsletter for 2013. Membership dues need to be in by 01/15 every year thereafter as to not lose your point status. You may join at any time during the year, however membership will lapse 01/15 without renewal.

3. Membership fee is $10 for digital and $15 for paper/snail mail.

4. Payment encouraged via Paypal. If you do not have a paypal account, contact the secretary, Trish Dusil. An invoice can be sent to pay online using the WCNA account with a debit/credit card.

5. Membership includes quarterly newsletter. Members are encouraged to participate. Feel free to write an article to submit at any time. We will let you know when your article will be published.

6. Membership includes free breeder listing that is posted publicly on the website and newsletter.

7. Membership includes accrued points with the WCNA. Point system will be included in your membership packet.

8. Membership includes prizes at WCNA meets.

9. Members are encouraged to participate in the newsletter with submitted articles.

10. Membership must be current for votes to count in officer elections, website information, etc.

I still have not received a statement or invoice for chicks in spring of '14. I am trying to get dues paid to be member. Having trouble.

Trish,
I have just a few Welsummer hens that I got from Whitmore Farms. I'd like to get a rooster and/or chicks/eggs this spring to start breeding them. I was just at the Northeastern Poultry Congress, which was also the APA National Show and there was not even one Welsummer. Anyway, please let me know how to register for membership. Also, let me know if there are any members or breeders in the Northeast that I could contact.

Thanks,
Robert

HI Terri,

I just now saw this comment, not sure why I didn't get a notice from Webs.com. Please send me an email at [email protected]watelecom.net and I can invoice you via PayPal.

Hi Robert,
I share your concern that there are not a lot of Welsummers being shown. Many of our club members are working to change that! As your email address did not come through on webs.com, please send me an email at [email protected] This way I can get you an invoice via PayPal, or you can mail a check for dues.
Best,
Trish
