Membership amount is derived from the amount of members and the minimum amount necessary to sustain an living space.  At set intervals (TODO: Specify the dates) the membership will be re-evaluated.  When membership is high the membership costs will go down.  Currently we require 15 people at $100/mo minimum to sustain.  If this number drops below the equation we will have to close the facilities.
 
 
 
Below is the equation for the minimum full members we need to sustain:
 
<pre>
 
Total_Expenses = Rent + Insurance + ...
 
Safety_Cash = The money we want to put in the bank each month.
 
 
 
MemberCnt = The total # of members required
 
StudentCnt = The number of student members in the group.
 
 
 
This equation assumes $35 for students and $100 for Members.
 
 
 
MemberCnt = (Total_Expenses + Safety_Cash - ($35 * StudentCnt)) / $100
 
 
 
Therefore, if we look at it as:
 
Total_Expenses = $1200
 
Safety_Cash = $100
 
StudentCnt = 3
 
11.95 = ($1300 - $35 * 3) / $100
 
 
 
So we know we need to have 12 full members.
 
 
 
You can also graph this equation if you assume:
 
x = StudentCnt
 
y = MemberCnt
 
 
 
y= (Total_Expenses + Safety_Cash - ($35 * x)) / $100
 
 
 
Just fill in Total_Expenses + Safety_Cash with their appropriate values.
 
</pre>
 
 
 
Possibly a more useful equation would be the total ammount of dues needed to be paid if we have a certain number of Members / Students
 
<pre>
 
Dues = [Total_Expenses + Safety_Cash - ($35 * StudentCnt)] / MemberCnt
 
 
 
Here we can see that if we have 2 student and 13 full time members, the membership cost would be...
 
$94.61 per Member
 
</pre>
