All Applications for membership in the Upstate New York Energy Association are subject to acceptance at a monthly meeting of the Board of Directors. Such meetings are generally held on the second Wednesday of each month with the exception being July during which no meeting is scheduled. All members are encouraged to attend monthly meetings of the Board of Directors as well as general membership meetings and other gatherings.
Other Funding Dues cover the basic operating costs of sustaining UNYEA. They also fund other activities relating to the mission of the organization. Member companies, as well as other manufacturers and vendors of products and services to the oilheat industry, are solicited for voluntary contributions to the Advertising/Promotion Fund to cover the cost of generic consumer education campaigns.
While by-laws allow for special assessments to be imposed by a majority vote of the membership on the recommendation of the Board of Directors, this procedure has rarely, if ever, been applied.
