|Subject:||Revision of Executive Committee Regulation 9.1(c) - Membership Application Fee|
At its meeting of May 11, 2001, the Executive Committee voted to increase the application fee for membership in the Association from $10,000 to $15,000. This fee more accurately represents the substantial costs incurred by the Association in processing membership applications. For your information, the initial ABA inspection fee is $25,000. Nothing else in this Regulation has been changed.
The Regulation, as amended, now reads:
9.1(c) Application Fee - Inspection Expenses. An applicant for membership in the Association shall upon making application pay an application fee of $15,000. The applicant school shall also reimburse each member of the team who inspects the school in connection with the application for all expenses reasonably incurred in making the site evaluation and preparing the site evaluation report and the member of the site evaluation team designated to confer with the Membership Review Committee concerning the site evaluation for all expenses reasonably incurred in attending the conference with the Membership Review Committee.
In accordance with Association Bylaw Section 5-4, this revision of Executive Committee Regulation 9.1(c) is in effect unless objection is expressed by 10 member schools within 60 days of this mailing.
