The Saugeen Trading Community (or STC) has approximately 120 members trading a diversity of products and services.
We have settled on a one time registration fee of $15 Canadian, which pays to set up databases and send initial information and application packages. There is also an annual fee of $20, which covers the costs of newsletter printing and mailing, hall rentals, phone bills etc. In addititon there are administration fees of 24 saubucks a year. 8 saubucks will appear on your member statements which will be sent three times a year.
To join up, read and sign the Members’ Agreement and fill out the Membership Application Form, make a list of goods and services you wish to offer as well as a list of things you want. Enclose a cheque payable to STC for the registration and annual fees and return to the STC mailing address (see sidebar).
