We're only a year old. But we just started this year.
Does your club have Dues? Yes
How much are they? $20 a year. We collect in January. So if you join in August you'll still pay $20 for the year. That just makes it easier vice keeping up with each person and when they paid.
Is it mandatory? No.
Do you have an option for those who don’t want to pay dues but want to participate occasionally in club events? Such as paying per meeting or activity. We do. Basically, if you pay dues you pay no fees to enter contest. You get discounts at the homebrew shops and you get first dibs on tasting and the like. It does pay for itself over time.
What do you do if someone who was a paying member doesn’t pay after a few reminders? I've yet to have this happen. Most folks will pay.
What if they end up showing up at your meetings or events, are they asked to leave? We will let folks attend. If it got bad, once the home brew flowed we'd ask them to leave I guess.
