Why do you care whether Members pay on time? Why are you planning to hire a collections agency to go after unpaid invoices?
Our landscaping efforts will not be as effective if our budget is unstable. We need to anticipate most of our funds coming in when they are due in order to most effectively allocate the funds.
When you pay on time, you allow the Board of Directors to focus less on asking for and collecting, which we do not enjoy, and more on our mandate of improving the community.
Collecting mandatory fees is the single most stressful and time consuming portion of running the CRRA; please consider this when making it difficult on our volunteers.
