Dues Ballot

Greetings all,

The national dues ballot has been tallied. The results are as follows:  


Region                                Yes                        No


Alaska                                 77                          95

Columbia River                 113                       40

Hawaii                                 52                          19          

Puget Sound

Passenger                           140                       279       

Puget Sound                     

Tow                                     104                       38

So Cal                                  63                          33

San Francisco                    95                          23


TOTALS                               644                       527


This means a dues increase of $3.00 1st year, $3.00 2nd year and $2.00 3rd year will be added to current monthly dues. This also means that a possible merger of Alaska Region with Puget Sound Region will not happen, or any other drastic measures that were being looked at as a cost saving measure. Thank you to all who voted.  


Yours in Solidarity,
