We are making some changes to help our club function better not only as a club, but within the larger scope of our relationship with MoPAC and USCA. The two changes that will affect you, as a member, are:

  • Membership Year: Our membership is by calendar year, while USCA and MoPAC run on the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). This misalignment causes timing problems with membership reporting and dues collection, and aligning to the USCA/MoPAC year will provide a more seamless experience. This affects you due to how we'll collect dues this upcoming year.
  • Club Dues: USCA and MoPAC fees rose in past years and we did not raise our dues accordingly. We are at the point now where we must raise our club dues to remain financially stable while saving funds for equipment needs. Club dues will raise to $65 annually.


To remove any impact on you as a member due to these two changes, here is how your membership dues will look going forward:


  • Your next round of dues, collected before January 7, will be $26. This membership will be good through June 30, 2017. The OCCC Board of Directors voted to cover $10 of the $36 cost of USCA and MOPAC membership for this shortened season. However, members can elect to pay the full $36, saving the club the $10 expense.
  • Starting July 1, 2017, we will begin collecting membership dues for our new annual cycle (July 1 - June 30, 2018). These dues will be at the new $65 annual rate.

We recognize that these changes are not small, but please understand both the Board of Directors and the Membership Team discussed this in great length and are satisfied that this is in the best interest of our club. These changes will allow us to continue to have our sights set on membership growth and position us to work better on our goal of being on dedicated ice.
