4. When Does My Membership Become
PFLAG Phoenix must
remit a portion of the membership payments we receive from chapter
members annually to PFLAG National. "National's" annual
fiscal year ends September 30th and we are required to submit
our dues payment to them the following month in October.
Therefore, it was approved by our PFLAG Phoenix Board of
Directors that future chapter membership drives will be
conducted each year in September so that dues payments may be
collected and payment remitted to "National" in October of each
year. Consequently, our PFLAG Phoenix membership year will
run from September 1st through August 31st of each year.
All membership dues received up through August 31st will be
applied to the current chapter membership year. All
membership dues received on September 1st or after will be
applied to the new chapter membership year.
