Proposed OCC Membership Fees 2015/16

by Ian Templeman & Ian Kidman

Every year your OCC Committee makes a recommendation to the AGM as to what it considers the annual membership rates should be for the next year. After a hopefully short and constructive discussion, the proposed rates are then voted on by the AGM and duly ratified. In the past, there has often been a discussion about the Yachting New Zealand SEM Levy which forms a part of our membership subscription and because of the way it was calculated it was slightly ‘unfair’ on single members. This year Yachting New Zealand have changed their levy formula to a flat rate per member irrespective of age, gender, etc., etc. We believe this is a far more fair system of spreading the levy across our membership, and consequently you will note that Family Memberships have changed more than most. The rates your Committee will be proposing are as follows:
Single Full Member $ 150 an increase of $10
Family Full Member $175 an increase of $25
Single Senior $110 an increase of $ 5
Family Senior $130 an increase of $15
Single Supporter $  70 an increase of $15
Family Supporter $ 95 an increase of $20
Student $ 40 an increase of $20
Junior $ 25 an increase of $ 5
There will also be a reduced membership for new Full Members who join after the 1st of January, but this will be a ‘once only’ part-year option.  If you have any questions or comments on the above then please speak to one of your committee members who will be happy to help.
