2019 Dues Invoices & Membership Information
A few key dates related to your 2019 membership are coming up. Dues statements are expected to be mailed this coming week so you should receive them in the mail by Wednesday, January 30th. Contact email@example.com if you have not received your invoice by FEB. 1.
If you have moved, you must notify us of your new address; and if you need to change or add email addresses on our distribution list, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with that information.
Dues must be postmarked by March 1 to avoid a $100 late fee. Memberships not paid in full by March 16th are considered terminated, and will not be renewed.
PAYMENT: Make checks payable to VPCA. Checks cannot be “held”, and postdated checks cannot be accepted. Mail to:
P.O. Box 3151
Decatur, GA 30031-3151
If you qualify for a Senior Membership discount this year (one member age 62 as of Jan. 1, 2019), please send proof of age (copy of a government-issued ID, e.g., driver’s license, passport) to Venetian Pools Community Assoc., Inc, P.O. Box 3151, Decatur GA 30030; OR email to email@example.com by Feb. 15, 2019. If you sent this in last year, you do NOT need to do so again. The discount will be automatically applied.
If you now qualify for the Twenty Year Membership discount, it will be automatically applied since the year you joined is in our records, so you do not need to contact us. (These are all memberships 1998 and prior).
Requests for a Senior discount must be received by FEB 15, 2019 in order to be processed for the upcoming season. Again, if you were in either category last year, you do not need to request either status.
Only one discount per membership will apply; if you are both Senior and Twenty-year, you will be given the greater discount, which is the Senior discount.
RESIGNING YOUR MEMBERSHIP– If you wish to redeem your membership, please mail your Membership certificate to the address below. If you joined prior to 2007, you are eligible for a redemption check, and your check will be mailed within 3-4 weeks after receipt. Mail certificate and request to:
VPCA Membership 1182 Oakdale Rd.,NE Atlanta, GA 30307
Save the Date: Spring Work Day – Saturday April 13
With Easter falling on April 21st this year, we would not want to schedule Easter Sunday as the rain date, so we are avoiding Easter weekend for work day this year. Typically, we schedule it 2 weeks ahead of opening day, but this year we will have it a week early on the 13th with the Sunday the 14th as the rain date. This also gives us more weekends in advance of opening day to get the pool ready as there are always additional items that need to be addressed after work day.
This is the day when we do the all important preparations to get our facilities ready for the upcoming season, and it is a great social event and a good way to meet other members. More specific details will be sent out closer to the date.
The day begins at 8:00 AM with juice, coffee, bagels and donuts.
Lunch will be served at noon.
It’s a great way to earn guest passes — 1 book of guest passes for every 2 hours worked per household.
We will be working until 5:00 PM.
Opening Day 2019
Opening Day is Saturday, May 4, 2019 with hours from 10 AM – 10 PM! It’ll be here before you know it!
