*** THERE WILL BE NO DUES INCREASE FOR 2017 ***
We only increase dues when the National and State increased their per capita dues to our Lodge. Our policy has always been not to raise dues on our members unless we are required to pay more for our Lodge registration. Here are the dues for the fraternal year 2017:
The registration deadlines we followed last year were done to be in compliance with the New York State FOP. We will follow the same deadlines this year as follows:
If you register during October 2016 your membership will be IN GOOD STANDING.
If you register during November or December your registration will be considered DELINQUENT.
After December 31st 2016 you will be SUSPENDED by the NYSFOP. Please note: NYSFOP closes their offices for the last two week in December so the earlier our Lodge registers the earlier we will get our National Cards and we wouldn’t have to play the December deadline game.
