Only members ( 18 years or older ) who are in good standing and have paid their dues for the last 2 consecutive years shall be entitled to vote at the biennial meeting …
The annual membership per family is $120 and $60 for singles…
Examples: A family that did not pay their dues last year will have to pay $240 ( $120 + $120 ) this year.
Singles $120 ( $60 + $60 )..
The membership dues of $120 for a family covers, in addition to the husband and wife, any member of the family under the age of 25, who is a dependent to the parents or is a student.
The CDS Board of Directors approved proxy voting this year.To be able to vote by proxy, the member in good standing should email email@example.com or submit a signed letter to the Board informing that he/she would like to have Mr./Mrs./Ms etc (only one name) to vote for him/her because he/she will be outside the Country or Province.
