SACS Membership fee adjustment
by Julius Klokow
29 September 2014
MORE NEWS

Dear SACS Members

During the past nearly 4 years there has been no rise in membership fees since I took control of the SA Carp Society on 1 November 2010. I have tried to manage expenses as far as possible in line with income generated from membership fees and every year I was able to carry over some funds to the next year. This year I have also dropped the membership fee for Level 2 members as per request of members but have also included the option for subscription to "The Carp Angler" at launch of the magazine. This has resulted in less income for SACS but SACS rather need more funds to ensure the provision of better facilities and venues to members.

SACS is in the position to have a healthy bank balance and cash flow for current activities but I have to start looking at providing better facilities at venues for our members without jeopardizing this. Funds are currently available to do proper upgrades to a venue but I do not want to take the chance of spending most cash funds leaving SACS with a cash flow problem as a result. I thus had to look at ways of expanding the cash flow of SACS in order to enhance SACS activities as well as providing better facilities at venues to members.

The options are:

1. Curbing of current expenses (Currently not reachable as we are negotiating new venues for Gauteng and the Free State resulting in more expenses due to traveling, branding and the advertisement of two already planned Carp Angling Clinics scheduled for Gauteng and Bloemfontein)
2. Requesting sponsorships
3. Adjusting membership fees

Although SACS has not relied on external sponsorships in the past we have to start to look at securing sponsors. I have tried to not bother people for sponsors in the past but it is now time for this path to be pursued to enhance the expansion of facilities at SACS venues. There is already a SACS member sponsoring SACS during clinics... he knows who he is and it is much appreciated.

I wish to hereby also give notice to all SACS members that the following membership fees will be payable from 1 November 2014:

Level 1: R55,00 per member
Level 1 and 2 (with "The Carp Angler" magazine subscription): R90,00 per member

I hope that all members accept the new membership fees and you are welcome to contact me at members@sacarpsociety.co.za if you have any further inquiries or comments.

Kind regards,

Julius Klokow
President of the SA Carp Society
