Also, at the A.G.M. it was explained the reason for recent increases now in effect, for our Branch membership dues and fees at our céilís. The membership fee increase, effective as of this year’s renewal, is due to the rising administrative cost within Comhaltas at the Provincial level. As stated in the Branch Report delivered at the October 2012 AGM, the Branch absorbed this increase for this year (2013).
The increases implemented at the céilís, starting this September, have been put in place to offset the rise in hall rental rates as well as insurance costs.
The Ottawa Comhaltas Branch is alive and well due in no small measure to your continued and valued support.
