Club Dues for 2022

When CO4WDA (Colorado 4WD Association) returned our dues for 2020 at the end of 2020 it caused some issues with our dues collection. As some of the people had already paid their dues for 2021, it would be difficult to work out a refund system. It was decided that the easiest thing to do would be to collect the 2021 dues as we normally do, and put the CO4WDA part of our club dues with the refund of CO4WDA dues from 2020 to be used at a later date by the club. With that said it brought us to the continued membership in CO4WDA. A proposal to drop CO4WDA form our club membership was passed at the January 2021 club meeting. With the removal of CO4WDA from our standard TRR dues this year, the 2022 dues will be different.
Associate Members ($20) will no longer exist in the dues structure. This type of membership was for people who lived more than 50 miles from Longmont, and could not regularly attend meetings, trips, or volunteer projects. These members did not pay an amount in their dues for CO4WDA.
Members (was $35 will now be $25) will now be the base membership for TRR. It will include those that were Members and Associate Members in the past. The partial drop in price is due to the removal of the CO4WDA dues. The $5 increase over past TRR dues amount (by removing the $15 CO4WDA dues) is to cover our website credit card function and encryption (now required by Club Express).
Supporting Members (was $80 will now be $70) will still be for members that want to participate in the club discounted membership in other 4WD organizations. Presently that includes Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition, United 4WD Association, Blue Ribbon Coalition. As with the regular membership, we are increasing this from previous levels by $5 as well.
