When to Pay?
We advise that you collect the fees annually, but if you have difficulty making foreign currency exchanges, you only pass on payments to the World Treasurer at your Area Seminar and the World Assembly. This will make it easier for you and avoid excessive bank charges and exchange fees.
If you have NO DIFFICULTY getting money out of your country, or foreign curreny exchanges, PLEASE PAY ANNUALLY to the World Treasurer.
The Federation funds are not healthy and your World Officers will not be able to visit your Area without an improvement in the payment of Membership Fees.
For as long as anyone on the Executive could remember, the membership fee for the Federation has been US 3 cents per person per year.
With rising costs for all aspects of the Federation work and life, and the need to fund the production of the Tree of Life without subscriptions because it is now on-line, a decision was made at the 2012 Executive Meeting to raise membership to US 4 cents per member per year. That is, US 20 cents per member for the Quinquennium.
