Belmont Neighbourhood Centre Membership

Why does BNC have a member reward program?  The facilities at Belmont Neighbourhood Centre are community facilities…. your facilities. As a not for profit organisation we recieve a very small amount of funds from the Deparment of Family & Community Services (FACS) which is continually eaten up by rent increases (9% per annum as set by LMCC), wage increases as a result of Fair Work legisaltion, electricity rises as well as the many costs in maintaining a 1939 building. We now need to increase the cost of our membership, programs, services & projects to meet our increasing operational costs. BNC would hate our increase to affect our members and would like to reward you for your support and attendance at our programs, services & projects.
