CDA House of Delegates to Consider 2011-2012 Budget

 May 5, 2011

On June 10, the CDA’s governing body, the House of Delegates, will consider the 2011-2012 budget (Resolution 04-11-B) in addition to several other resolutions.  Associated resolution 05-11-B will impact the proposed budget as it calls for a 5% dues increase each year for a period of three consecutive years.  Upon approval of these resolutions, the 2012 dues of the CDA will increase $16 for active members.
