(As of July 27, 2011)
ATB Policy and Procedures
The annual dues of all members will be mailed out on the first business day of each December of the prior year’s collection. The Executive Director will create a journal entry to reflect the dues in January of each year. All members will be allowed to charge for events and activities only if their account is current and in good standing.
Any new member that joins ATB after the original dues assessment time will be prorated by a twelve (12) month process.
Default in Payment of Dues:
When any member shall be in default in the payment of dues after the last business day of each April, from the date on which such dues became payable, they are considered to be a “dropped” member. Such member shall not be reinstated as a member in good standing until it has paid all outstanding dues and other outstanding invoices in full, they shall have no rights of any kind as a member of ATB.
Resignation of Membership:
A member may resign from the ATB at any time by giving written or verbal notice of such resignation to the Executive Director. All annual dues and other amounts assessed to such member that are unpaid shall be paid on or before the effective date of such resignation, and there shall be no refund of any annual dues that have been paid or are payable.
Termination of Membership:
Any member may be terminated for good cause in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors. What constitutes “good cause” shall be as determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. The Executive Director shall send written notice to any member sought to be terminated at least fifteen (15) days prior to any such action, and such member shall be entitled to provide the Board of Directors with a written explanation as to why he or she should not be terminated at least five (5) days prior to any such action.
All agency members are eligible to be a complimentary “guest” of ATB at its Membership Dinners. A “guest” is defined as someone who is paid for by ATB to have dinner. It’s the policy of the Board of Directors to allow one guest from each paying agency to be compted for dinners.
In the unlikely event that a member is unable to make a dinner, cancellations must be made at least twenty four hours prior to the dinner. A full refund will be granted to a credit card or a check will be written if the cancellation is made on time. Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will not be refunded.
