Chapter Idea Fair

Challenge Campaign

Evergreen Chapter

Entry Details

On June 3 WA State Department of Revenue announced an Excise Tax Advisory that would change the way Clubs calculate tax on dues and would impose a new tax on Club initiation fees.  Both of these would significantly impact our Golf Clubs. The Chapter stepped up to organize a challenge, be the resource and the advocate for Private Member Clubs throughout the state.
