Executive Summary

Title: The SCAR Membership Fees

Authors: M C Kennicutt, A L Huiskes, M Sparrow, R Badhe

Introduction/ Background:

In 2010 the SCAR Delegates agreed to the following Resolution:

"Delegates agree the need for an increase in contributions of up to 20% in 2012 based on a business case that SCAR will provide for Delegates to take to their funding agencies."

The Business case was circulated (IP4) to all Delegates.

Recommendations/Actions and Justification:

Delegates are asked to approve the proposed fee increases for each membership category (see document). 

Budget Implications: The budget implications of approving, not approving, or a mid-way scenario are outlined in the draft budgets for 2013 (WP35) and 2014 (WP36) as well as the Business Case (IP4).
