Membership Development at Shriners International has made the September 2015 Shriners Magazine available on the internet as a flip-book document. You can easily page through it. This issue highlights the many exciting events of the 2015 Imperial Session in Houston and can serve as an excellent tool to educate non-Shriners to the fun, fellowship, and philanthropy which our fraternity has to offer. The following link is provided: Shriner Magazine September 2015

As all of you know your Shrine Dues are comprised of Maskat Dues ($89), Hospital Assessment ($5), and Per Capita Tax. Beginning with 2016 Shrine Dues, the Per Capita Tax increases from $15 to $30. Until December 31, 2015, the cost of a Per Capita Life Membership (PCLM) is $450 ($15 X 30). After the first of the year it will cost $900 ($30X30). If you purchase the PCLM before December 31st, your dues will be $94 instead of $124. Also any future increases in Per Capita Tax would not affect your dues as you would be “paid up for life.” In 15 years you will have recouped your $450 in dues savings. You can also purchase a Permanent Contributing Member (Hospital Assessment) for $150. This would decrease your dues another $5 per month. If you are interested in either of these, please contact the Maskat Office (either Connor or Donna)
Beginning with 2016 Dues Year, the Per Capita portion of your Maskat dues will increase from $15 to $30. This means that your total Maskat dues will increase to $124 ($89 Maskat; $30 Per Capita; and $5 Hospital Assessment). If you are a Per Capita Life Member, your dues will not increase. You can purchase a Per Capita Life Membership between now and mid-December for $450 and you dues will not increase, instead will decrease by $15 per year. Beginning in 2016, a Per Capita Life Membership will cost $900.
You may want to consider putting your dues on bank draft. We have also included Blue Lodge dues on the bank draft for several Nobles. Continue reading
