Your County Executive have set next year's County Levy
At its meeting on 17 September, the County Executive Committee agreed that the County Membership Fee for 2020 (payable for all young members in all Scouting sections from Beaver Scouts to Explorer Scouts) will be £13.80 gross (£13.50 for prompt payment), an increase of 30p from 2019 - Leaders should have already received advice from The Scout Association that the 2020 UK Membership Fee will be £29.00 gross (£28.50 for prompt payment), an increase of £1.00 from last year.
Advising all District Commissioners, Mark Edwards, the County Commissioner, said: “The small increase in the County Membership Fee is to help us to develop further as a County, meet our running costs and improve our support to Districts. Some 89.9% of sections are now registered with Online Scout Manager via the County Subscription and this will continue. We also aim to deliver even better activities and improve the support that we give to Districts on a wide range of issues from recruiting to training.”
Your District Executive Committees should now consider their own District Fees or Levy for next year, before advising all of their Scout Groups and Explorer Scout Units of the total fees due and payment deadlines. So expect some important news from your Districts very soon.
The small increase WILL improve the support to Districts
