The members of Tahuti Lodge support the work of the Lodge through regular payment of dues. Dues pay for our temple rent and utilities, for equipment maintenance and upgrades, and other miscellaneous expenses. Details of all our expenses and income are provided to any dues paying current and active members of good report upon request. Member names are deleted to insure the confidentiality of our members.
Dues can be paid yearly or monthly, tiered in the following manner:
|Affiliate||$10||Affiliate and distant Brothers and Sisters pay $10|
|Minerval||$20||Dues optional for the first three months|
|I°-III°||$30||Brothers and Sisters|
|IV° and above||*||Mandatory additional pledge above normal dues expected at this level, suggested at $50|
Dues can be paid in three ways

You may pay your dues or pledge in cash, check or money order in person by giving your payment to our Lodge Treasurer.
You will receive a receipt for your payment.
Members who are unable to pay their local dues should make arrangemnets with the Treasurer (or Master) of the Lodge to waive or reduce their dues according to their circumstances. Temporary finacial hardship happens to most of us now and again. Without question, the Lodge has no desire to turn away good brothers and sisters who are going through a period of fiscal difficulty. Our members are the life blood of this organization, and there are many ways for someone to contribute even if money is tight. We would much rather have our members make arrangemnets with the Treasurer then to silently fade into inactivity because he or she cannot pay full dues for a period of time.
Dues Lapsed Status
The Lodge defines “dues lapsed” as failing to remain current in payment of Local body dues for three or more consecutive months without making other arrangements, such as requesting a dues waiver.
The master of the Lodge may suspend the Lodge membership of any Lodge member who becomes dues lapsed. Members who become dues lapsed can reinstate their dues current status by paying any back dues owed, and remaing current thereafter.
