First of all, thank you very much for your support of FLURISA during the 2019/20 year. It is that time of year where we once again ask for your continued support. We have officially joined the OneURISA initiative, which will go into effect in January 2022. For this reason, we have prorated membership dues to $12.50 and this will be good through January 2022.
FLURISA still exists and will continue forward, however, our membership model is changing. Under OneURISA, the two memberships are being merged together. URISA (our parent organization) will collect one membership fee. Paying the URISA membership will automatically include membership in both URISA and FLURISA. The reason for the mid-year prorated value is to get in alignment with the URISA model which resets in January 2022.
We are working closely with URISA to make this as smooth a transition as possible. For our members, we are asking them to join FLURISA for the remainder of 2021 and then join URISA as you normally would starting in 2022.
We as a board are working out all the details of what membership entails along with “Friends of FLURISA”, non-URISA members who still contribute and participate in select events throughout Florida. We’ll be announcing more details in the coming months as we work with URISA and get those details ironed out.
For our corporate sponsorship, nothing has changed other than as a bonus to being a FLURISA sponsor you get access to a larger audience as URISA members will have full access to all FLURISA activities.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
FLURISA is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
