It would appear from recent correspondence that some Clubs are unsure about the MYA membership fees for 2021.
The MYA Council, in accordance with the Constitution and Regulations, sent out a formal notice of the AGM and formal notice of the 2021 membership fees on 31st July 2020. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt the relevant paragraphs are repeated
“In line with the new Constitution we are announcing the Membership Subscription for 2021.
This will remain at £14 for adult Members and free for Juniors (below the age of 18 on 1st January in the subscription year).
However to reflect the lack of sailing during the Covid-19 pandemic, the underspend of budgets for the same reason and to address the increasing surplus of funds, all Members as at 30th September 2020 will receive a credit of £7 towards their 2021 subscription.”
Putting this another way, the net membership fee for existing full Members in 2021 will be £7. Any new Full Members will pay the full £14. Juniors and Members of the Presidents’ Club are free.
If you have any further queries please contact me.
