Non-Sufficient Funds/Bounced Check Policy

When the bank informs the treasurer of a bounced check/NSF, it will be recorded in the register and the following actions will take place:

 

  • For all checks that have been deposited with in one month of being written:  a $30.00 service charge for the NSF transaction will be assessed to the MAVT member.
  • For all checks that have been deposited after one month of being written: a $15.00 bank charge for the NSF transaction will be assessed to the MAVT member. 
  • Any MAVT member whose financial status is not in good standing will have their membership placed on HOLD, and privileges revoked until payment is received.
  • Convention privileges paid via NSF will result in termination of future privileges until financial status returns to good standing.  
  • All payments made to MAVT will be applied to the longest outstanding debt first.  MAVT members must have financial accounts in good standing in order to be active members.

 

Notification of NSF status:

  • Both written and verbal communication with the member will be made immediately informing the member of their change in status.
  • If payment in not received within two weeks of initial contact, a second written and verbal communication will be initiated. This communication is to include associated penalties, to be imposed, if the account is not brought into good standing. 
  • A final notification will be made at four weeks if the account is still not brought into good standing.  This will be the FINAL notification for the member of their inadequate financial account status.  At this time membership and associated privileges will be revoked until the account is brought into good standing. 

 

In order to bring an account into good standing:

  • Payment to cover NSF fees as well as NSF amount may be made by money order, cashiers check, or cash.  A receipt will be issued at this time.
  • Any future transactions by the MAVT member must be made via money order, cashiers check, or cash.  NO PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
  • The treasurer reserves the right to arrange payment plans with any MAVT member that cannot make payment in full, at the discretion of the MAVT Board.
