The Prime Time Band has, since its inception, had a policy of granting credits for dues paid if a member
misses four (4) or more consecutive rehearsals. At its meeting on October 28, 2014 the Board of Directors approved the following
change in the administration of the credits because the attendance sheets are occasionally incomplete and some members forego taking the credits. Members will now have the responsibility of claiming the credit when they make their next dues payment. Credits not claimed will be considered to be donations to the band and acknowledged as such annually.
Formerly, at the end of each quarter, the treasurer reviewed the attendance sheets and notified members of issued credits as appropriate. Beginning with credits earned after October 1, 2014 the following procedure will be in effect:
Members who have missed 4 or more consecutive rehearsals during a quarter and who wish to receive a dues credit will be responsible for deducting the appropriate amount from their dues payment for the following quarter, attaching an explanatory note to their payment. The schedule of credits allowable is as follows:
- If you were absent for 4-5 consecutive rehearsals, you may deduct $35.00
- If you were absent for 6-7 consecutive rehearsals, you may deduct $50.00.
- If you were absent for 8 or more rehearsals, please contact the treasurer directly.
The treasurer will use the attendance sheets to verify the absences, then enter the appropriate credits on the computer along with your payment for the current quarter.
Remember, if you wish to take advantage of the credits, attach a short explanation (“I missed 5 rehearsals April 1 through May 5”) to your dues payment for the quarter and deduct the appropriate amount from that payment.
If you have any questions, please contact the treasurer.
