Union/Chapter Assessments


Union/Chapter Presidents and Financial Representatives – As a reminder, NCGCC unions and chapters must be in good standing financially in order for its members and delegates to participate in NCGCC activities. The 2022 Union/Chapter assessment is $1000.00. As a means of relief, we kept the assessment fee at the same amount as it was in 2019 in light of the impact of the national pandemic.  NCGCC requires you pay at least $500.00 (five hundred dollars) of the assessment by April 13, 2022 in order to have voting privileges at the National Board Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. 

And for your convenience, we offer three payment-plan options: 

  • Option 1 (one payment) – one full payment of $1000.00 by Wednesday, April 13, 2022. 

  • Option 2 (two equal installments) – a $500.00 payment completed by April 13, 2022 and another $500.00 completed by June 15, 2022. 

  • Option 3 (four equal installments) – two payments of $250.00 each ($500.00 total) completed by April 13, 2022, and the remaining two payments of $250.00 each ($500.00 total) completing the $1000.00 by June 15, 2022. 

The full balance of $1000.00 is required to participate as NCGCC members at the Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida; otherwise members will have to pay the visitor rate (or the difference of the visitor rate if they registered before June 15, 2022).   Visit https://2022ncgccunionassessment.eventbrite.com. Or, you may pay by check or money order and mail it to the lockbox address: NCGCC, Inc., P.O. Box 874, Clinton, Maryland 20735.

Please make all checks and money orders payable to “NCGCC” and include the words “2022 Union Assessment” in the memo section. Please feel free to contact the Finance Team (ncgccfinance@gmail.com) or Registrar (ncgccregistration@yahoo.com) if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you, please stay safe and well, and we look forward to serving you!
