EXAMPLE: If your annual gross sales volume is $2,000,000 your base dues are $1,750.00.



Use the dues multiplier of (.0015) x your annual gross sales volume, then subtract your base dues to determine your VOLUNTARY Contribution. 

Enter your VOLUNTARY Contribution below (see below for example):

$_______________.0015 x annual gross sales volume

$_______________Subtract BASE Dues—Step One

$_______________Your VOLUNTARY Contribution



If your annual gross sales volume is $2,000,000.00 your:

$2,000,000.00 x .0015 = $3,000.00

Base dues are: $1,750.00 (refer to Base Dues Chart)

Voluntary contribution is: $1,250.00 (the difference between $3,000.00 and the base dues)

Dues Computation: Your dues are based on your total residential, commercial, and industrial water treatment sales, rental, and service revenues.

  • When one member acquires another, the gross volume of the two should be considered when determining the volume membership dues are based upon.

  • For members with both retail and wholesale sales, the gross volume of the sum of the two should be used to determine gross volume.
