Board Report from Chicago July 2023, annotated: Report
"The budget is in better shape than it was at this time last year. Hopefully, with tournament attendance increasing, that will hold. While membership dues will go up next year, members can renew early. If you would like to take advantage of the “old” dues, you can renew for up to 3 additional years on ACBL.org. Just click on “Renew” near the upper right corner. " More
