Voting results and bylaws amendments
On Aug. 15, 2019, NCRA members voted on seven amendments to the Constitution & Bylaws during the NCRA Convention & Expo in Denver, Colo.
Voting on Proposed Dues Increase
The Board of Directors recommended that reporter dues be raised to $300 for Registered and Participating members and to $179 for Associate members. Student dues will be raised to $55. (The chart in the article on the dues increase shows the proposed changes for additional groups.) Members who opted to become Lifetime retired members before Dec. 31, 2017, and those who were granted honorary status will continue to pay no dues.
To go into effect for the 2020 year, the Board’s recommendation must be approved by a majority of the voting members present at the NCRA Annual Business Meeting that will be held in conjunction with the 2019 NCRA Convention & Expo in Denver, Colo., Aug. 15-18.
