The Board of Trustees continues to review the dues structure seeking to address the concerns and realities of a sliding dues scale while still presenting a balanced budget to ensure we have the resources to continue to live into our vision of a stronger, more effective UUMA.
In the 2015 fiscal year the UUMA began to move its membership period to match the fiscal year (July 1-June 30). As a result of this all memberships expired on June 30, 2015. Because of the realities of our accounting systems all dues are payable beginning July 1 and must be paid by October 1 to retain membership.
The renewal system uses the Ministerial Setting and Salary&Housing fields in your profile to calculate your dues amount (for Regular, Associate, and Students who have recently been received into fellowship.) Here are the hopefully easy steps in renewal:
When starting to renew the system will ask you to update your profile. Make sure the Ministerial Setting and Salary & Housing fields are correct. If you are a Regular/Associate member selecting Student or Retired will result in a $0 dues amount. Please select a dollar amount range for the S&H field.
Next, select the level you would like to renew at. Your options are:
One Payment or Installments (annual dues that can be paid in full or split into 10 payments)
Auto Renewal run on July 1 (must be paid using a credit card will be set to automatically renew for FY17 on July 1, 2016)
Regular/Associate Min. with Discount Code (if using a discount code makes your dues total lower than the minimum dues use this category to pay the minimum - $100 as a community minister and $200 as a parish minister)
Temp Financial Hardship: Opt Installments (Minimum for those experiencing temporary financial hardship. Can be paid in full or split into 10 payments)
Request For Full Waiver (For those who plan to submit documentation requesting a full waiver of dues)
Confirm you are changing your membership level (this is true for all)
Enter a promotional code if appropriate and complete the billing information
Please check your dues amount to ensure it is what you expect. If the system gives you $0 due it may be because your profile is not correctly configured. To see the current dues structure click here
Candidate to Regular: If you have received preliminary fellowship or have retired you can select to upgrade your membership. Candidates who were received into fellowship this previous June should upgrade to TBV-Regular.
Regular to Life: Regular members who have retired through the MFC and have been active in the UUMA for at least 5 years should select: MFC Retirement - Life Member Upgrade. Contact Janette Lallier for more details.
Membership Discounts: If you belong to a separate organization that is necessary to your ministry, you may use a discount code to deduct a portion of your dues. Associations are assigned codes based on their dues amount. One code is allowed per membership. If you use a discount code please upload proof of your membership to your file library - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help. Click here to view available codes.
If by applying a discount, your dues will be less than the minimum ($200/parish or $100/community), please pay the minimum.
