Notice of MGS Membership Fee Increase

Has your genealogy society increased it’s membership fees this year? How do you feel about this? If they have increased their fees, have they done this because the cost of doing business has become "increasingly expensive”.

 It looks like most Canadian societies have increased their fees by $10.00 a year.

 Well, the Manitoba Genealogy Society is just the latest society to do so.

 Thus, effective April 1, 2015, the beginning of their new fiscal year, the Individual and Institutional fees will be increased from $40.00 to $50.00 per year. The Associate member fee will remain at $20.00. Branch fees are set by the individual branches. They say that they “trust that our loyal membership will understand our financial situation and continue to support the Society”.
