At the CAN AGM 2011, membership fees were increased across the network, and passed on to local groups. From 1st January 2011, CAN's membership fees increased by $5 to
Unwaged: $20 ( was $15)
Waged: $35 (was $30)
Family: $40 (was $35)
Supporting organisation: $85 (was $75)
Reasons are: recent GST rise to 15%; basic expenses (printing, communications, etc) continue to rise ; some significant funding sources (e.g. NZTA)ceased.
It is proposed that CAW raise its membership fees in line with the CAN levies.
CAN implemented membership database - CiviCRM – in the last year. It is hosted on the CAN website. There is the opportunity for CAW to manage membership lists, including bulk emails, sub payments, via CiviCRM. Our current database – Member Ties – is hosted on an individual, personal computer. The email list is separate and on a personal account. CAW will investigate using the CAN database for membership admin.
