Policy to Support Society Tents
Approved January 28th, 2019
The Society will partially subsidize the cost of certain designated Society Tent items by reimbursing 80% of the cost of items purchased after February 1, 2019 by our Society Tent Sponsors, up to lifetime maximum of $250 per Society Tent.
To be eligible for reimbursement, such items must be those approved by the President or President Elect and be displayed on our Other Resources page of our Society web site.
The Tent Host must first:
Have downloaded our current Officers Handbook which is displayed our Other Resources page, and
Have already assembled its two Display Binders for ongoing use at the Society Tent.
1 – With your receipts for an order of $280 of eligible items from this page, the Society would remit $224 to you ($280 x 80% = $224).
2 – With your receipts for an order of $350 of eligible items from this page, the Society would remit $250 to you ($350 x 80% up to $250). In this case, the $250 rebate limit for that particular Society Tent has been reached so no further rebates are available on any subsequent purchases for it.
