Proposal: 002-2009

The European Board proposes to bring the following point forward to the International Board:

Art. 7. Sec 7.03. Chapter Dues, International Bylaws should be dropped. Reason:

The International Bylaws are more than 30 years old. During the last 30 years inflation went on and most of the chapters are unable to get along with the fees, the International Bylaws allows. There is no need for maximum fee as in case of too high amounts nobody would join the club anyway.


Each chapter may assess an annual membership fee. Chapters, which maintain a clubhouse, may assess an additional annual charge to cover maintenance and operating costs of the clubhouse.

Second: Chris Feick, President Germany XVIII
