Paymaster Report

Gail Fernandez : July 9, 2017 17:55 : Paymaster

Marines and Associate Members,
So the 2017 Convention is in the history books and it was a great success. Many thanks to the Simi Valley Detachment for hosting a memorable event. I had a great time as did my husband Jess. He won a club in the golf tournament for the longest drive – Sacramento to Simi Valley, LOL.
There were some major changes voted on by the membership. Effective 9/1/2017, Department dues are increasing to $11.00. Detachments should look at what their current membership dues are and if necessary consider raising them. However, you may want to wait until after the National convention in August, to make sure they do not raise National dues also.
The membership also voted to reduce the number of conferences held each year. There will now only be one conference and one convention per year. This year the fall conference has been cancelled. This was done for cost saving purposes. There will be a spring conference in San Fernando and the 2018 Convention will be held in Clovis. Information will be posted on the website for these events.
I hosted a paymaster’s class during the convention and it was very informative for those who attended as well as myself. We bounced a lot of information off of each other regarding all the changes going on. The paymaster’s manual has been updated and will be posted on the website.
A few reminders for everyone, the tax year is now closed so you should be preparing to file your taxes. They must be filed by 15 November. Be sure to send me copies of your 990 & 199. Your RRF goes to the Judge Advocate. The June rosters should be out soon, this will be the roster that you use to verify your life members. If you have questions about this refer to the paymaster’s manual.
And lastly, I frequently get questions regarding contact information for Department officers and staff. Usually whatever is being asked can be found on the Department website – mclcal.org. Please take advantage of this valuable information. For those of you who don’t know me personally, I still work full time and sometimes it takes me a while to return your emails. Thank you all for your patience.
As always feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Dues renewal information

Gail Fernandez : March 28, 2017 17:20 : Paymaster

As adopted by the Board of Trustees at the 2017 Spring Conference in Clovis, yearly members with expiration dates of 4/1/2017 thru 8/1/2017 do not need to pay dues to the Department of California.  These members will still need to pay the reduced amount of $10.00 to National.  All members will be receiving a 9/1/17 expiration date and National will no longer be sending out renewal notices so it will be up to the Detachments to notify their members when they need to pay dues.  Once a member has the new 9/1/17 expiration date, the dues go back to the regular amount of $20.00 to National and $9.00 to Department.

Members who expired prior to 4/1/2017 will still need to pay the $9.00 Department dues and the appropriate National amount.  If you are uncertain please send me an email or give me a call.

Thank you all for your patience during this transition period.  It has been challenging and I appreciate all of the support you have given me.

Paymaster Message

Gail Fernandez : October 30, 2016 05:48 : Paymaster

Marines and Associate Members,

I just emailed the 30 September rosters to all of the paymasters and commandants that I have email addresses for.  If you are a paymaster or commandant and did not receive it, please send me an email as I probably do not have your email address.  National will no longer be mailing them to the individual detachments.

All detachments are required to have their Federal 990 and State 199 taxes filed by 15 November.  I have already received copies from many of you.  If you still haven’t done them, you need to do so soon, and send me copies.  I am required to report to National who has complied.

You also need to send me your life member certifications.  This is how you get payments from National for your life members.  Use your 30 June roster and the Commandant and Paymaster need to sign the last page certifying all of your life members are correct.  I must forward these to National prior to 30 December to be entitled to the payments.

The Department Commandant is planning on having break out classes at the next Department Convention which will be next June in Simi Valley hosted by Detachment 597.  One of the classes will be for paymasters.  If you are a paymaster or would just like to get the information consider attending. 

More information regarding the convention will be posted on the website.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
