Insurance Fee Increase Effective Recharter for 2020
For more than 15 years, the Daniel Webster Council (DWC) has subsidized insurance costs and absorbed all increases, holding the per-registered-member rate at only $1, which is far below the actual cost. To illustrate the impact on the annual operating budget, the DWC collects approximately $13,000 and pays out over $145,000 in insurance costs. With the continued rising cost of insurance, the DWC can no longer subsidize these costs and remain fiscally strong. The new per-member insurance rate will increase with the removal of the subsidies.
