SSAWW Announcement: Membership Dues Increase Notice (coming June 1st, 2019)

Dear SSAWW Members and Friends,

After several discussions and research into our peer organizations, the SSAWW Executive Committee and Advisory Board have voted to increase our membership dues.  The increase comes after many years in which  dues have remained  at their current rate. As we respond to member feedback about a more frequent conference schedule and continue to grow as an organization,  adding new members, the dues increase will allow us to continue our current ventures and support  new ones.

You can renew at the current membership rates until May 31st, 2019 for the year January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019. If you have already renewed your membership for 2019, then there will be no changes until you renew for 2020.

You can find the page for renewal on our SSAWW Membership site, and you can review the new membership dues rate that will go in effect for those renewing on or after June 1st, 2019.


 SSAWW Membership Dues (New – Effective – June 1st, 2019)

Student/Retired/Independent Scholar – $35.00

Regular membership, annual -$90.00

3-year Regular membership (expires 12/31/2021 if you join/renew after 6/1/2019) – $230.00 

Lifetime* – $800.00 

(*option to pay this in 4/$200 installment over one year calendar year, but you must contact the SSAWW VP of Membership and Finance in order to begin this plan)


If you have any questions, please reach out to president.ssaww@gmail.com or ssaww.vpmembershipandfinances@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Sandy Zagarell

SSAWW President

SSAWW Election Committee – Seeking Nominations for 2 officer positions

Dear Colleagues:

The SSAWW is seeking nominations for two officer positions:

Vice President, Membership and Finances

Vice President, Development

Please consider nominating yourself and/or deserving colleagues (nominees must be current SSAWW members).  These positions are not elected offices according to the SSAWW constitution but appointed positions by the executive committee and advisory board, so there will be no general vote among the members.

The SSAWW constitution defines these positions as follows:

  • The Vice President, Membership and Finances shall be appointed by a majority vote of the Executive Committee and shall serve a three-year term. The Vice President, Membership and Finances shall maintain the membership of the Society; provide reports on finances to the President, Advisory Board, Press, and others as required; shall maintain the Society’s funds and distribute those funds as required for routine expenses, conference costs, and other expenses as approved by the President and/or the Advisory Board.

 

  • The Vice President, Development shall advise the Executive Committee on new, long-term projects for the Society and shall be appointed by the President, with the advice of the Advisory Board, for a three-year term in the first instance, with the option for renewal for a second three-year term.
