Subject: [DCHAS-L] Your dues & CHAS Membership

Dear CHAS Members:

Beginning the New Year is a time for budgets and looking at finances. As a loyal CHAS member, you pay $12 dues per year and $36 for your subscription to the Journal of Chemical Health and Safety. I hope you understand the many benefits of membership and I will leave that conversation for another time. Today, I want to explain what your dues is used for. Here is a high-level analysis of income and expenses, based on 2017 numbers:

Dues Income $46,715.00


JCHAS Publication cost $32,916.00

Awards & Regional Meetings $3,299.00

Direct expenses for 2 Open Meetings of CHAS per year $3,762.00

Reimbursement for Elected & Appointed Leadership to attend Open Meetings $17,674.00

Exhibit Hall Outreach Booth $8,801.00

Total Expenses $66,452.00

The roughly $20,000 deficit is made up by income from workshops, some non-dues income from ACS, and donations.

Note: CHAS members who are elected leaders or appointed committee chairs are eligible for partial reimbursement of expenses to attend the Sunday morning open CHAS meeting. This covers travel, one-night lodging, and meals. Elected leaders receive a maximum of $700/meeting and appointed Chairs receive a maximum $450. Our program Chairs and Councilors receive a higher reimbursement based on the requirement that they attend the entire National Meeting.
