As recommended by our Board of Directors and supported by our Affiliate Advisory Council in 2015, the Affiliate dues invoicing will commence in July and be due and payable no later than September 1st. The dues year will still work on a fiscal year of October thru September. By invoicing Affiliates earlier and receiving payment prior to the beginning of the fiscal year, FCBR hopes to provide Affiliates with a better method and more accuracy in calculating their annual budget items.
