The memorandum below concerning the payment policy for squadron dues was issued by Squadron Commander Jeff Landtiser.
16 Sept 2015
TO: All SQ 302 Members
FROM: SQ 302/CC
SUBJECT: FY 2016 Squadron Dues Payment Policy
Deer Valley Composite Squadron 302 will collect from each member of the squadron, both cadet and senior members, annual squadron dues. The current dues amount collected from each member is $40 per fiscal year. The amount is due at the start of each fiscal year, which occurs on October 1. The responsibility to pay squadron dues has no tie, relation, or association with a member’s responsibility to pay national CAP dues.
Squadron dues are used to pay for utilities (electricity, water, and trash collection), general office supplies, general facility maintenance, fuel for squadron motor vehicles, and items and programs that are determined as being in the best interest of Squadron 302’s mission, and, as applicable, approved by the squadron Finance Committee.
New members joining Squadron 302 will have their first year’s squadron dues amount prorated by fiscal quarter, depending on their join date in accordance with the schedule below:
Oct -Dec $40
Jan -Mar $30
The squadron finance officer will begin collecting squadron dues this month for the new fiscal
year. Again, all members’ squadron dues are to be paid by Oct 1, 2015 for the new fiscal year
and are not dependent or related to your CAP annual national dues join/due date.
In regard to delinquent dues payment, three weeks after the Oct. 1 payment due date, an initial
overdue notice will be sent to the member. A second reminder notice will also be sent to the
member when his/her dues are five weeks overdue. If annual squadron dues are not received by a member after seven weeks past the due date, the member will be placed in inactive status, and the member must contact me or a deputy commander within 48 hours in order to arrange for dues payment and return to active member status. Finally, if dues are more than nine weeks overdue, the member may be notified that his/her CAP membership has been terminated.
Checks are to be made out to “Civil Air Patrol-AZ Wing”, and can be submitted to the finance officer, a deputy commander, or me. Checks can also be mailed to the squadron at:
DEER VALLEY COMPOSITE SQUADRON 302
CIVIL AIR PATROL ARIZONA WING
UNITED STATES AIR FORCE AUXILIARY
932 W. DEER VALLEY RD.
PHOENIX AZ 85027-2151
While payment via check is strongly preferred, members paying in cash are to obtain a receipt from the finance officer or the commander or a deputy commander, or their designated assistant.
