Fellow Makers and Supporters, As of July 1, 2009, Twin Cities Maker is accepting dues and donation payments via PayPal, cash, or personal check.
At the member meeting on June 24, 2009 we approved a $10 minimum monthly dues starting on July 1, 2009, with subsequent payments due on the first of each month. Funds from dues will support startup capital for things such as legal incorporation, publicity, and a security deposit for a space.
The current dues schedule is published HERE
Twin Cities Maker Dues Schedule
(as last approved by members)
Dues shall be paid on the First of every month.
Dues shall be $10 per month.
Dues may be prepaid in any amount.
Upon a dues increase due to the acquisition of a physical space, up to 50% of all dues paid by each individual Member up to that point may be applied toward that Member's future dues, with no more that 50% of any single month's dues remitted by this credit.
Effective for January, 2010 and indefinitely into the future: Dues shall be $50 per month.
We hope that $10 per month is very affordable. We do, however, need to see how many people will commit to paying monthly dues in order to budget for necessary expenses.
Also: Until TC Maker obtains its own space, up to half of your paid dues can be credited toward future dues (prepaid dues). After that time your dues credit can be redeemed, up to 50% of the dues for each month. Prepaid dues will be considered generally non-refundable.
You may also of course designate a portion or all of a payment as a donation.Please join us as a dues paying member and enjoy the full benefits of TC Maker participation!
As a dues paying member, you are entitled to member-exclusive events, discounts on event fees, use of our space and other goodies. We're presently considering fun events such as a swap fest, clothesline vehicle race, and a potluck!When making a contribution to TC Maker, either by cash, check or electronic transfer, please specify if all or part of your payment, and how much, is to be applied toward dues or donation (PayPal has a field for special directions). Thank you and welcome to TC Maker!!!
