Shares & Dues

At the March 10, 2015 Members' meeting, delegates voted unanimously to adopt a new Shares and Dues structure. The Shares & Dues structure for both Class A & B members is now greatly simplified and is based on sales (for co-operatives) and assets (for credit unions). A new Class C Sustaining Membership category was added for Class A members paying over $25,000 in dues. Any Class A member can elect to become a Class C member by increasing their dues to that level. Class C Sustaining Members are eligible for a designated seat on the Board in accordance with BCCA's revised Rules, also adopted at the March 10, 2015 meeting.

Dues will continue to increase at 3% per year in the 2016-17 fiscal year.
