(F)    Membership Dues: 

         The Membership Dues where voted in by the Council in May of 2013. If you hold a Membership Card for the Indian       Creek Tribe Chickamauga Cherokee Inc.  Then You have Membership dues to pay.  Non-payment of membership dues will lead to inactive membership cards and the benefits that come with it. If you hold a office position then you must pay your monthly dues on time to be able to keep your position.  The only way a member has the right not to pay there monthly dues is if they have filled out a hardship form and then it has to be approved by the council.  The ICTCC does not run for free and it takes income to keep the tribe running.  All Native tribes have Membership dues and yes we tried to not have membership dues but it did not work. The average cost to run the Indian Creek Tribe Chickamauga Cherokee Inc. per year is $10,000.00

The Principle Chief has Covered this for the past 40 years and this is why the Council decided to vote having membership dues.  They voted that it was not fair for the Principle Chief to have to cover this by himself when there are well over 60 thousand members in this tribe.
