    4141At the same time this growth has not come without costs.  As our community has increased, so has the demand for services. We have been making critical investments in hardware and equipment, technological upgrades, software applications, enhanced security measures and more to meet these needs.  Membership dues are critical for these efforts - we pool our collective resources for the benefit of our entire membership. And we have kept our dues historically low to ensure that these services can be made as broadly available as possible.  But every member's contribution counts.

    43 In the past we have been generally lenient with regards to dues collections.  But we have decided that both as a commitment to our core political principles and to our collective community - particularly the costs incurred and shared by all - we need member groups to be accountable for their dues payments.  If you have already been regularly paying your annual dues, then nothing will change.  For groups that have gotten behind in their payments, we want to offer you the opportunity to pay your dues by DATE or we will remove your website from our servers.  Going forward, dues will need to be paid within 60 (90?) days of receipt to maintain active membership status.
