Greetings from California! I hope this correspondence finds you well. I am honored and excited to start my term as the new treasurer of the ACC and hope that I can be of support in any way possible to the organization as well as to each member.
Enclosed with this letter you will find your dues invoice for 2022-2023/5783. Payments are now being accepted. Your payment is due by October 31, 2022. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any concerns regarding your dues or need to make special arrangements. Please call or e-mail me so we can make an arrangement that ensures keeping you in good standing with the Conference. All conversations will be held in appropriate confidence. The ACC recommends you review the ACC’s Guidelines for Discretionary Fund Usage and your synagogue’s policies before deciding to use discretionary funds for the payment of your ACC dues. Donations via your discretionary fund are always welcome. Dues payments and donations can be returned in the enclosed envelope or you may opt to make a credit card of electronic payment on our website.
If your congregation pays your dues, be sure to turn this invoice into the proper personnel to ensure that your payment is made on time. Our organization is highly dependent on your dues for our programming and services and paying in a timely manner ensure the continuation of the multitude of offerings the Conference provides. Further, as a member in good standing, you will have complete access to services such as Placement, Member Support, our Retirement plan, and the ACC “members only” sections of our website, to name just a few.
Of course, I encourage all our members to make additional contributions to the ACC so that those members who are not able to pay their full dues for whatever reason can remain active members of our community. On the dues invoice you will find an invitation to support the Chesed Fund and Enhanced Dues, both of which support our colleagues in need through individual financial support and dues support. We also encourage you to become a Friend of Transcontinental Music ensuring that the publication of new Jewish music continues and thrives. Further, please consider a clergy membership to ARZA strengthening the Movement’s commitment to build a more pluralistic and democratic Israel.
Again, dues are considered late if not paid by October 31. Avoid any late fees and submit your dues at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your membership in the American Conference of Cantors! You are a valued member of our community. May you be inscribed for a healthy and sweet year!
Cantor Leigh Korn, ACC Treasurer
