One of our goals for 2019 is to create more awareness of our Organization throughout Bowdoinham via use of our social media outlets, an up-to-date website, electronic mailings like this one, and through efforts to increase and retain our membership. In the past, BCDI has renewed memberships in the month the first contribution was received. For example, if you became a member in November of 2016 we've sent you an email or letter asking you to renew that membership in November of 2017 and 2018. In order to simplify the process and to avoid confusion we are transitioning all memberships to be renewable in May. For those of you who are current members you will next be asked to renew in May, 2020. If you have an automatic PayPal payment set up with us during any point in the year then you are all set! We may also reach out to you during the rest of the year to ask for contributions for specific projects or needs. Your generous contributions to these requests may be tax deductible, as are your membership dues, but will not be considered membership renewals. We hope this effort to streamline things benefits all! If you have any questions about this new process, please don't hesitate to reach out!
