Welcome Konza Rotarians!
Don’t forget to pay your dues by 5/31/23!
The board is excited to present a new dues format this year.  The dues are structured in three different tiers:
1) Corporate Paid Membership $300 - Members who have dues paid/reimbursed by their company should select this option.
2) Membership 2+ Years $225 - Members who have been with Rotary for 2 years or more.  This rate is the same dues rate at last year.
3) Membership 0-2 Years $175 - New members who have been with Rotary for less than 2 years.  Going forward members new to the Rotary will receive a reduction in dues their first two years of membership.
 In addition to the dues you may also use this website to make Cup Collection contributions and/or donate to the Opportunity Fund.  
All dues should be paid through our website, . Or by check given to Memory.
Any questions regarding these changes may be directed to Memory Buffington,, and Michelle Sink, .
