Consensus Agenda

Cancellation/resignation of membership

Proposal: Members who cancel within 3 days after a monthly dues payment is due may do so effective halfway into the dues cycle. If that dues payment has been paid, they may receive a refund of half of the last month's dues paid. In all other circumstances, cancellations are effective at the end of dues cycle. --Guan (talk) 14:19, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
