Mr. Craig Leighty, President of the International Scouting Collectors Association (ISCA), posted a heads up to Patch-L of a membership change that is coming soon to ISCA. According to Mr. Leighty, the official notification will be in the September Journal.
We wanted to inform Patch-Lers that there has been a change in the Membership fee for ISCA. The official notification will be in the September Journal. FYI, the current cost of membership is $25. There is NO CHANGE for current Life Members and regular members until their current dues expires.
Effective next Tuesday, July 28th, the cost of membership will drop to $10.00 per year. Membership will include access to the Journal on-line on the ISCA website, but “membership” in ISCA will no longer include a copy of the Journal mailed to you (except for current Life members and regular members as noted above).
The new $10.00 fee is for NEW MEMBERSHIPS and RENEWALS that pay starting next Tuesday. Again, it will give you on-line access to the Journal, but no hard copy will be mailed to you. Going forward, if you wish to
subscribe to the Journal, you may do that separately (however, you must be a member to be able to subscribe to a copy of the Journal that will be mailed to you). Cost of a subscription to the Journal is $25.00 per year mailed to a domestic location and the cost is $50 per year mailed to an International location. The website effective next week will reflect the new membership fee and a separate cost for a subscription to the Journal that is mailed to you.
Not: If you join or renew your membership prior to next Tuesday, you can still pay the old fee and it will include a copy of the Journal mailed to you. If you are renewing, your membership date will be extended by
one year from the current end date.
1) Cost of Membership: $10.00 per year (and gets you access to the Journal on-line)
2) Cost of a Subscription of the Journal (through the mail): $25.00 per year (to a domestic mail address)
3) Cost of a Subscription of the Journal (through the mail): $50.00 per year (to an international mail address)
4) You must be a member to be able to subscribe to a copy of the Journal that is mailed to you
5) All of the above is effective for NEW Members and RENEWALS effective Tuesday, July 28th
6) There is NO IMPACT on current Life members
7 ) There is NO Impact on current regular members, until your dues expire . . . then when you renew, the new structure will apply
8 ) You can renew at the old rate if you desire until sometime on Monday, July 27th up until we turn off the current plan to get ready to implement the new plan.
We’re all excited about NOAC and the NOAC Trade-o-ree which is hosted by ISCA this time and is an actual program event for NOAC. So, if you are attending either, stop by and say hi . . . you can also pay your dues or renew there as well, but that will be using the new rates.
