On June 5, 2013, the Board of Directors approved a second level of regular membership:
“Any persons who live at the same address as a NARGS member, Regular, Patron, Lifetime or Honorary, may become a Regular member for $10/year. This membership has all of the privileges of a Regular member except that it does not provide a paper copy of the Quarterly.”
Under the new policy, an additional member at the same address, upon paying annual dues of $10, will be allowed to:
1. vote in NARGS elections,
2. participate in the seed exchange,
3. attend annual meetings without paying an additional membership fee,
4. log on to the new NARGS website as a member.
Only one copy of the Quarterly will be mailed to an address.
Additional members at the same address who elect not to pay the additional annual membership fee will no longer have the voting and annual meeting privileges and will be allowed to access the website as users only.
The policy will go into effect upon membership renewal beginning January 1, 2014.
Ben Burr, NARGS Recording Secretary
