  2. Money grab New Hampshire style

    An old post from 2009 Some things never change! Clubs concerns at the NHSA Annual Meeting????????? WINNOCTURN posted a topic in General Discussion What are the Clubs asking their Delegates to ask of NHSA at the Annual Meeting? Pay to Vote? - Insurance Coverage – Mandatory Membership – How well our interests are being watched at the Legislative level. Feel free to fill in the Blanks? The poll that Paul_D set up shows that there is some dissatisfaction on how... May 8, 2009 10 replies Maybe we all should go back to some of our OLD post and see how much things have changed? The Faces may change but the issues remain the same!
  3. Money grab New Hampshire style

    Freedom Rider, "If individual joins through the portal they are paying a $2.00 transaction fee. They then pay another $10.00 Transaction fee." The extra $10.00 NHSA is taking out of a online Club set Membership Dues goes to the Operating Expenses of NHSA. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH becoming a Member of NHSA. As is stated earlier by using the NHSA PORTHOLE you are not a MEMBER OF NHSA!

  5. Online Membership Update

    Joined the West Moreland Snow Belters Club yesterday. I had a major problem trying to fill in the information in the "New Member Account" Screen. I had completely filled in, using my regular E-mail Address. As soon as I "Create Account it blew the information out because the e-mail address was already in use. I finally used a phony e-mail Address to get in to complete the trans action. Did I miss some that would have let me join using my regular e-mail address? There Club online Membership rate was $25.00. When I joined through the NHSA PORTHOLE the Membership Fee was set at $35.00? Had to be at that rate to protect against the $10.00 NHSA is taking off he TOP? After I checked out I discovered I was a member of NHSA again. Again maybe I missed something??????
  6. Online Membership Update

    John, Say we could change RSA to read in order for a Club to be eligible to offer a $30.00 Registration discount the Club must be Registered as a Nonprofit Organization with the Secretary Of State. Or something to that respect. Just a thought.
  7. Online Membership Update

    John, “Online Membership User Agreement” “The Club gives permission for NHSA to retain $10.00 per each club membership transaction from the monies received on behalf of the Club from Online Membership Sales.” Where is the $10.00 going to???? Has anyone asked Dan Gould, NHSA Executive Director? Last Statement in the NHSA Announcement Association will address the remaining stipulations. Additionally, in the very near future, the Association will address the remaining stipulations set forth in the agreement through methods such as enhancing the current business plan, expanding the current standards of operating procedures, and proposing a restructure of the bylaws. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email at nhsapresident@gmail.com Beth Horvath-Palmer, NHSA President Not a good critique of NHSA Operating Structure?
  8. Online Membership Update

    John, We are heading down the same path. Articles 22 and 24 may be quite relevant to the question. Why not say what the $10.00 for? I am sure someone will be asking this of NHSA shortly. Maybe the AG is monitoring the NHSA Website to see if NHSA is living up to the "COMPLIANCE OBLIGATIONS" set forth in the "ASSURANCE OF DISCONTINUANCE" document. "ASSURANCE OF DISCONTINUANCE" = I swear I wont do it again!
  9. Online Membership Update

    20 Clubs participate in NHSA Online Membership Program as of 1/14/18 Question of the $10.00 FEE?DUES??? is open to debate. If you go through the process of joining online when you get to "CASH" out the $2.00 processing Fee is still applied? $10.00 are you joining NHSA with out knowing it?

    After reading the AG's findings we are in the process of Changing it. The verbiage probably goes back 20 years long before I took over the Membership position. It probably comes from a time when there were less problems at NHSA. A more Supportive Time. I have been looking to make a break in the linkage to NHSA and make it an optional choice for some time. Now after reading all of the documents related to the AG's findings I will have no problem making the CHANGE! Did you check out any other clubs application? I feel you should follow thru and make them aware of the problem. As you know I am a avid NHSA Hater or is that Trump? No, I did vote for him yah. Do you remember the trouble I got Gail in some maybe 20 years ago over the Stalling of getting the LRCT to reopen the Castle Trial? I am getting off point. Night, Night Time!

Or is a NHSA Membership Fee? Do you have to JOIN NHSA when you use the “NHSA” Portal. It’s not like you are Actually joining on an Club Website.

Such assurance may include a stipulation for the voluntary payment by the alleged violator of the costs of investigation by the attorney general, or of an amount to be held in escrow pending the outcome of an action, or of an amount to restore to any person any money or real or personal property which may have been acquired by such alleged violator, or all 3. Any such assurance of discontinuance shall be in writing and be filed with the superior court of Merrimack county.

    Moultonboro Snowmobile Club We/I am in the Business of "SELLING Memberships" to our Club! We try to get our RENEWAL Applications in the mail no later than the last Week in September of each year. We usually have 30 to40 percent of our yearly Membership in by the end of November. We have 3 venues that Sell our Applications. We leave Applications that are serialized to a Membership Card that is attached to each Application. Last year we finally setup an ONLINE MEMBERSHIP Page on our Website. You get a Moultonboro Snowmobile Club Membership Certificate you can print out. If you are interested in joining our Club click link below http://moultonborosmc.org/online-club-membership/ When we process your Application in to our Database we also send you our official MSC Membership Card. It's a little less bulky than a 8-1/2x11 sheet of paper. One of the busiest times is when the Mass and NH School Vacations are back to back and we have SNOW! Like last year. We recorded 250 Application during that period. Now let ME vent my pet peeeeevvvve on the Number of Applications that are processed. Say lets use the above as an example. 250 Applications to process? No it really 500??? OH, you forgot that the 250 now have to be entered into the NHSA DATABASE. Yes you just entered 500 Memberships. 3000=6000 Entries 1000=2000 750=1500 50=100 Thanks to ROGER and NHSA! NEW AND IMPROVED NHSA DATABASE? Remember we were told we could "upload" our Database Entries it to the New NHSA Database like we had done before. The New NHSA Database runs of a "CSV" file format (Excel). "CSV" files are one of the easiest file formats too work with in moving data. Sorry, I got a batch of Membership Cards Maps and Decals to mail, PO closes in 25 minuets. Thank for putting up with ME!
