TDBA is proud to now offer the club a way to pay annual dues through the use of PayPal. The convenient form of payment does come at a cost to the club. PayPal charges a transaction fee and a set dollar amount per transaction. To help offset this additional cost to the club, we are asking that if you use PayPal to submit your annual dues, please check the box on the next page that says, “Add $ to help cover the fees”. If not, the club will be forced to eat the cost of that transaction, hence less money to run the day-to-day operations.
