The Committee on Maintenance of Union Membership (MUM Committee)
oversees the implementation of the Proportional Dues Program which
includes provisions under which congregations may request approval of a
plan for a temporary reduction of or an alternate plan for payment of
their URJ dues.
The District MUM Committee reports directly to the North American MUM
Committee which meets quarterly to review and recommend approval of
proposed plans to the North American MUM Committee. In addition, the
District and North American MUM Committees will recommend suspension or
termination of congregations for failure to comply with the URJ's dues
policies as provided for in the Proportional Dues Plan.
