Members who would like to vote at the Temple’s Annual Meeting or at special Congregational Meetings must be current in their financial obligations to the congregation, according to our bylaws. The treasurer determines whether a member is considered in good standing.
The board policy outlining guidelines for determining members in good standing states that members must be current through the last complete billing quarter or have made arrangements with the treasurer to honor their financial commitment to the Temple. Religious School and other life-cycle event fees must be paid in full or a payment plan must be in place as agreed to by the treasurer. All past obligations also must be paid in full, have a payment plan approved by the treasurer, or have other arrangements made with the treasurer.
The treasurer will notify congregants who are not in good standing by mail no later than 30 days prior to the Annual Meeting. The Treasurer will present a list of members in good standing to the president and the secretary of the congregation seven days before the annual meeting. The treasurer shall complete any last minute changes and the list shall be verified by the treasurer at the opening of the annual meeting.
