Service Club Memberships

The St. Charles City-County Library District, in recognition of the importance of having key staff members interact with the community, shall offer limited reimbursement for service club memberships and fees.  Persons qualifying for reimbursements shall generally be within an exempt classification.  Since the purpose of this policy is to encourage broad representation with a wide variety of organizations, reimbursements within an individual club shall not exceed two staff members.

Since individual organizations treat dues and meals/programming functions differently, reimbursement shall be set at a rate of 50% of both dues and meal/programming functions.  There shall be no mileage reimbursement to attend service club meetings or functions.

Reimbursement shall not be given for expenses and travel related to regional or national conferences.

Examples of service clubs for which reimbursement might be given include, but shall not be limited to:  Kiwanis, Optimists, Rotary, Civitan, National Organization of Women's Clubs, Lions, Zonta.  Reimbursement shall not be given for religious, hobby, or insurance organizations.
