A. Over the last several years, it is without a doubt that the Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement (VEYM) has grown at an unprecedent pace with a record high of 140 Chapters nationwide and growing. In reaching its historic 35th anniversary, the VEYM is recognized as the modeled youth ministry across the country in the promotion of faith, discipleship and family. To continue to stay steadfast on course amidst the many challenges facing the youth today, we need resources. As such, now more than ever, membership dues are increasingly vital.
B. In accordance with the Bylaws 2019 (Chapter VIII, Clause 63), making contribution to the VEYM via membership dues is required and is the responsibility of all members. It is also the responsibility of the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương) and the Finance Committee (Ban Tài Chánh) to present and make available the VEYM’s annual financial report to all for transparency and accountability (report was presented to League of Chapters Presidents in May, 2019, and published in TNTT Bi-Weekly).
C. With unanimous consensus and support from League of Chapters Presidents (Liên Đoàn Trưởng) during recent meetings with the National Board of Executive Officers (Ban Thường Vụ Trung Ương) in April and May, 2019, the National Executive Committee (Ban Chấp Hành Trung Ương) will begin to hold accountable all Chapters with regards to membership dues following the deadline date to submit membership dues, which is November 30th, 2019.
D. Chapters not in compliance with membership dues as outlined by the Bylaws will not be eligible to receive VEYM’s services (e.g., training resources, Weekly Gospels, promotions and processing, scholarships, campaign initiatives, training camps, IT support and services, online Education Center, registration to Conventions, Congresses, and etc...). Chapters with unique challenges in meeting the membership dues requirements are invited to contact the National Executive Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance and support.
E. The deadline to submit the $10/member membership dues to Headquarters as stated earlier is November 30th of each year. To submit membership dues to Headquarters, please see addendum attached. To submit the $5/member membership dues to League of Chapters, please contact your League of Chapters Executive Committee directly (Ban Chấp Hành Liên Đoàn).
F. Through the submission process detailed in the attachment, we are closer to a more efficient process, not to mention a more accurate census. All League of Chapters Executive Committees are invited to direct Chapters to follow through accordingly. Chapter Executive Committees are asked to take action accordingly. For questions, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com.
