June 2020


There will not be a June General Meeting. 

We will see what July holds. Hopefully we will be able to meet and I can pass the torch off to Tammy!

Previously, Centralia BPW Board announced that we would waive yearly dues during Shelter In Place Orders as some of us were not receiving regular income. As we return to a semblance of normalcy The Board would appreciate that if you have not paid your dues that you do so by July 1, 2020.

We understand the hardships that are being faced; however we are needing to conduct some business (nomination and election of new officers!) that does require a quorum. 

Many of the unpaid dues are from the time period BEFORE Shelter In Place was enacted. If you are reading this and believe you may fall into that category and have not spoken to or heard from either myself or Treasurer Cary Day please contact one of us.

If we are able to meet in July, we will be voting on the slate of officers nominated as well as holding installation! If we are unable to meet in July we will vote on nominations via email.

It is  very important that the following things must happen:
• Dues must be paid so that we know our membership numbers and are able to determine a quorum.
• Everyone please be sure to keep checking your email for notification on whether we will be meeting in person or holding an electronic vote.

1. I have received notification that some members have received an email about their dues from State and this could possibly cause some confusion. If you have received this email please disregard and continue to send your dues to LO Treasurer, Cary Day. Please send a total of $50. (BPW Local amount $15, State $35, Cary takes care of sending the state dues in.) If you are over 80, your state dues are waived and you simply owe Cary $15 for LO dues. If you have already sent your $35 to state, please send $15 to Cary for your Local BPW dues. I apologize for any inconvenience and/or confusion this may have caused.
Cary's Address: 
1104 Eagle Crest Rd.
Centralia, IL 62801

2. Also regarding dues: Cary has resumed sending out reminders about dues. We ask that unpaid dues be paid by July 1, 2020 if you wish to remain a member.  We need to know our membership numbers to determine a quorum for voting on important business matters.

3. I have linked the Membership Survey below. Tammy has not received many back! Please fill the survey out and return it to Tammy.
