CCÉ Boston Membership and Dues
Membership is Open to All
All are welcome to join CCÉ. Membership is open to all who apply and all are invited to share in the musically rewarding and friendly society of Comhaltas.
In addition to the cultural and social benefits we hope you will enjoy, your membership includes a subscription to our monthly branch Newsletter informing you about our local and regional activities and quarterly issues of Treoir, the official Comhaltas magazine published in Ireland.
Fiscal Year membership term is November 1 to October 31 each year. Dues for the fiscal year are due and payable by November 1st.
MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION & RENEWAL
We hope you realize the value of being a part of the Comhaltas organization. Your continued membership will reaffirm pride in your heritage and exemplify strong support for traditional Irish music, dance, and culture.
Where the Dues Go
Our local Comhaltas group pays a Provincial level assessment to cover the cost of mailing Treoir; the international magazine is one of the benefits of membership in the Comhaltas organization. The Provincial Council handles the importing and mailing of Treoir magazine. Using US mail is still the most practical method to ensure that all our members receive this magazine dedicated to traditional Irish music.
Members who are currently receiving the paper (mailed) version of the Newsletter and who agree to receive future issues of the Newsletter via email, kindly contact Barbara Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know. We will of course need your email address (and the best way to get a correct email address is if we receive an email from you). Please also let her know of any email address changes so you will continue to receive your Newsletter and any special announcements we may send out via email.
Help Keep Costs Down by Subscribing via Email
Printing and mailing our own Newsletter is the branch’s biggest expense. We are fortunate to have a strong base of advertisers that help defray this cost. Their advertising support helps us to mitigate printing and postage costs. Increasing postage costs have a big impact on our organization. You can help to keep these costs down by subscribing to the monthly newsletter by email.
Dues for the Current Year
Current Year dues remain unchanged from the previous year and are as follows:
- Individual Adult Membership $25
- Second Adult at same address $8 (that’s $33, if you’re counting)
- Couples $33 (same as two adults – makes sense)
- Junior Membership (under 18 years) $5
- Family Membership (with all children) $40
