As the last few membership payments come trickling in, I’m tempted to predict
this year’s final membership number.
Membership payments still coming in?
Yes, I know that most of you wrappedit up by December. But after the D&D meeting,
I always check back in with the colleges from whom nothing has been received to see what the situation
might be. Yes, there are cases where the college simply can’t pay (and
that’s not the choice of the library). BUT it may be that the payment is
still sitting in the Business Office (it happens), or that the transaction
vanished electronically (yep, that has happened), or that it never made it
out of the Library (administrative or clerical turn-over). And it may be
that the check was sent, but never received by CCL. Once in a while that
I know that there are late payments in the mail, or at least in the process.
Thanks to all who responded so quickly!
So, my prediction: 108 paid memberships
(this would be our highest ever!).
And I’d love to have guessed too low!
