|Re:||WRC Affiliation Fees|
Per the notice circulated on April 1, the WRC Board acted at its recent spring meeting on a proposal to raise the minimum university affiliation fee to $1,500. The Board approved the increase. As noted in the April communication, the increase – the first since the WRC was founded in 2000 – was necessitated by the erosion of the minimum fee’s value over the last eight years, due both to inflation and the decline of the dollar overseas, where the WRC does the bulk of its work. The new minimum fee of $1,500 will be reflected in fee invoices for the 2009 fiscal year, which will be sent next month. Please let me know if you have any questions.
