Money Matters

Interestingly enough, most FPA members send a check off to Denver, Colorado for FPA dues without ever considering exactly how much is dispersed to help support their local chapter.   

How does your Ventura County Chapter benefit?   Once FPA gets the check, they forward a small percentage to your chosen chapter. The amount ranges from 10% to 19% depending on the amount of the payment.  It is a small sum, nowhere near enough to provide the services necessary to the membership. Some chapters augment this income by having a dues structure of their own for their members (chapter dues). Ventura County Chapter does not.

Chapter Happenings

Getting Social

We Got Social in 2015!

The chapter held two social mixers in 2015. In summer we did a T.G.I.F. WineDown at Blush Restaurant and Lounge in Santa Barbara and December we held a Thursday Shake-Up at Brendan's Irish Pub in Westlake Village. Thank you to all who joined us.

It is a great opportunity to meet and visit with your chapter leadership and network with chapter members in a relaxed, casual and fun environment. We are planning a mixer in April and June watch for more details. We hope to see more of you Sipping, Snacking and Socializing at our next event.

If you have suggestions or ideas for other social networking gatherings please contact Rachel. Cheers!
