Dear Members of the Rotary Club of Bangkok

As you may know, the Rotary Club of Bangkok (RCB) has to pay twice a year a contribution to Rotary International (R.I.), which will be US$ 32 per member and

In order to avoid paying unnecessary dues, we would highly appreciate if you could inform us if you have the plan to discontinue your membership at the end
of this Rotary year i.e. by June 30, 2018. This would help us making the correct calculation of our semi-annual dues to R.I. We apologize for raising this issue but we would like to avoid having to pay dues to R.I. for members who actually have left the club.

If we will have the benefit of your continuous membership, you do not need the reply; if we do not hear from you, we will happily assume that you will remain a valued member of our Club.

However, if you have to terminate your membership of RCB, please let us know as soon as convenient, in all event before June 15, 2018. You may report to the current Membership Chair, PE Maleeratna (maleeratna@gmail.com) with a CC: to our executive secretary, Khun Bing (rotarybangkok@gmail.com)

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We hope to receive no reply at all and everybody will remain member of the Rotary Club of Bangkok for the coming year.

Yours in Rotary,
Maleeratna Plumchitchom
President Elect and Membership Chair 2017-18
