    Subscription / Should this be merged?

    How do people feel in general about paying subs? Does your band have them or not? Are they a good or bad idea?

    There was a thread on this topic some time ago so there's quite a few views here

    however my view has always been that to be a "member" of the band you should enter into some form of formal basis and what better than to agree to pay an amount that the membership of your band feel is appropriate.

    At Killamarsh the committee recommend an annual subscription rate to the AGM and that can be accepted or otherwise by the membership. We take the view that the total subscription should cover the fixed costs of the band on the basis that we take no other fee income whatsoever - so we add up the cost of rent, insurance, conductor and divide this by the membership - at the moment that cost would be about 100.00 but we are proposing 75.00 this year for full members. OAPs, students etc pay half.
