F.A.Q. of a CAV Treasurer

Q: When are dues due?

A: At the start of the academic year-as soon as possible after you receive the fall newsletter in August. The fall newsletter contains a form to submit with your dues.

Q: Where do I send dues?

A: Send them to the treasurer. The address is always with the form in the fall newsletter. If you misplace the form, check the list of officers on the inside cover of every newsletter. If you misplace the newsletter, the CAV webpage has all the information you need, including addresses and a membership form.

Q: Is there a special deal for first-time members?

A: There certainly is! The first year of membership is free, Free, FREE. Membership is also free for full-time undergraduates and graduate students. Just submit the form in the newsletter or on the web to the treasurer. Spread the word to the new hires in your school or area. This deal is also good for people who always meant to join but never quite got around to it. Again, spread the word.

Q: How are the dues used?

A: The dues pay for the newsletters; for the web page; for an occasional CAV reception at other meetings (at FLAVA, for example, or at CAMWS if it’s held in Virginia); for some of the expenses the speakers at CAV meetings incur; and for an occasional contribution towards a special project to promote Classics (such as the Augusta County Institute for Classical Studies).

Q: What if I don’t get a newsletter?

A: If you have not received a newsletter by the first week of September, December, April, or June, something is wrong. Let the newsletter editor or treasurer know as soon as possible.

Q: Where do I send a change of address?

A: To the treasurer.

Q: Have we missed any FAQs?

A: I don’t think so, but if we have, send YOUR question to the treasurer or
