Subscription Rates Resolutions for 2021 AGM. This meeting resolves that: A Effective from 1 January 2022, the present Ordinary and Concession rates of annual membership subscriptions to the City of Durham Trust will be replaced by a uniform rate of £10 for individual members or of £12 for two members residing at the same address. Each joint member shall have full attendance and voting rights, but only one set of Trust communications will be sent to their joint address. B For new members, annual membership shall commence on the date on which their application is accepted, and renewal will fall due on the equivalent date in the next calendar year. In the case of new members joining during 2021, their first renewal date will be extended pro rata to reflect the difference between the subscription rate applicable when they joined and the rate applying from 1 January 2022. C For existing members who joined before 1 January 2021, the renewal date for annual subscriptions will continue to be 1 January each year. Where existing members do not wish to alter any standing order for subscription payments, any overpayment will be treated as a donation to the Trust and acknowledged as such for their tax records. D Life membership subscription rates shall remain unchanged at £200.
