Dialogue on Dues discussions
We have recently been exploring a new dues model. Our Financial Sustainability Committee studied a variety of dues models that have been successfully implemented by other congregations. As a result we have identified an approach we hope will increase both revenues and engagement and in doing so will create a healthier holy community.
If you missed one of our four live info sessions, you may still view a recording of the November 13th info session and access handouts.
