See the By-Laws, Article III, Sections A. through G.
The dues of voting chapter members and members-at-large must be sent to the FCB Membership Secretary. The amount of individual dues for chapter members is set at $3.00 above those of the American Council of the Blind and those of members-at-large are set at $2.00 above those of chapter members.
If ACB increases or decreases the dues charged to the state, FCB will follow suit. The present dues for FCB shall be $8.00 for each chapter member or $10.00 for members-at-large. However, the actual amount paid by individual chapter members is set by each chapter's By-Laws.
Each chapter and each member-at-large MUST send the appropriate dues and corrected membership roster to the FCB Membership Secretary by November 30th of each year.
Dues and rosters of chapters and dues of Members-at-Large received after November 30th may result in inability to vote at the convention.
In addition to dues, each chapter will be assessed a minimum of $50.00 per year or 20 percent of chapter sponsored fund raising activities, whichever is greater, and 35 percent on raffle tickets up to $1,000.00. Please take note that an accounting and payment of the above assessments is due by January 31st of each year.
During the FCB fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th) in which a new chapter is chartered, the chapter is exempt from payment of dues and assessments.
Chapters wishing to participate in fund raising activities utilizing professional fund raising must FIRST obtain approval from the FCB Budget and Finance Committee. Failure to do so may result in suspension by the Executive Committee pending a hearing.
