In recent months ARPA Active Over 50s has been faced with a higher rent at its new premises and yet more increases in postage costs. Council is convinced that Level 4, 25 Leigh Street provides substantially better facilities for its members, while ARPA News remains an essential means of communication. In addition, improvements in telephones, computers, software and photocopying equipment are enabling ARPA to develop its website and promote its activities to more potential members. We want to follow up on the success of the Sealink deals and other offers with new benefits for members but we must invest in new equipment and sometimes specialist advice to achieve our aims.
Consequently, in view of these factors, Council has decided on a small increase in its membership fees from September 1, 2017 – the first increase since February 2015.
The new rates are as follows:
|Type||Current fee||New fee||Annual equivalent|
|JOINT ANNUAL||$53.00||$58.00||$29 per person|
|JOINT 3-YEAR||$126.00||$150.00||$25 per person|
We have endeavoured to be fair to both single members and couples, while retaining for each group a substantial saving if paying a 3 – year fee. By doing so a single member can save $14, while a couple can save $24.
