Why Paid Memberships
First, The state of Oregon has informed us that as a membership corporation we must hold annual board elections. In order to do that, we need to have a clear and unambiguous list of members. The law states that as a membership organization, our activities must be supported by our members! Your dues and donations will enable us to support your TAG students--at home and in the classroom. Your membership enables us to advocate for TAG students statewide.
Second, we simply can't make ends meet without your support. All the OATAG board members are volunteers. Your dues will cover our overhead costs for serving you. That includes:
Maintaining our registration with the state of Oregon as a non-profit corporation.
Internet Service, email and the OATAG website.
Software subscriptions for membership records, membership communication and events.
Printing and postage.
NAGC affiliate dues.
Outreach and Meet Up expenses
In Addition OATAG Supports
Oregon Spellers, but we have done this at no net cost to our overall balance sheet.
Student Grants which are funded by donations, not membership dues.
OATAG advocates for the needs of talented and gifted children, serves as a resource for families, educators, and communities, and provides direction for excellence in education. Web Master: email@example.com
