Why do we charge to run a local chapter?

The fees we charge are both to be sure you are serious about running an FCA Chapter, and to partially offset the cost of hosting, maintaining, and administering the and its chapters. We would love a huge endowment to draw from, but we don’t have that. We have always kept our fees at the lowest level we could while still being able to operate.
