The rising cost of postage and printing has dramatically impacted on the cost of producing and mailing Grey Power Federation’s quarterly magazines. Kāpiti Coast Grey Power is an affiliated Association of Grey Power Federation, and its magazines will continue to be posted to its financial members.
This year postage alone has cost the Federation $134,419 for 3 issues – potentially around $180,000 for the year. With escalating postage costs, the magazine postage now consumes over 60% of the capitation fees from the membership, leaving far less for Grey Power Federation’s core business of advocating for older people.
For those members who are internet users, the Federation would like to encourage you to consider receiving your Grey Power Federation magazines online. You will be advised by email when a new issue is available, but you can visit the site at any time in between to keep informed.
While not for everyone, there are several advantages for those who choose the online option:

Grey Power members are encouraged to try the digital version. If they try it and decide it is not for them, they are free to go back to receiving the magazine in hard copy.
The Grey Power Federation will never require all members to be on email. Hard copies will always be available to members who, for whatever reason do not want a digital copy. The choice is yours.
