Dear Colleague,

We are excited to announce that your dues/agency fee will be reduced. Our investment committee and treasurer made a recommendation to our executive council that this year’s budget could be executed with a lesser dues amount. As such the new budget, that was proposed at our annual meeting and overwhelmingly adopted by the membership calls for a reduction from 0.7% to 0.63%. Please check your paychecks dated February 3, 2017 (corresponding to the pay-period, January 6, 2017 through January 19, 2017) to make sure it reflects the reduction. Thank you.
