Fifteen percent (15%) of our annual membership fees go to Adyar, India, the headquarters of the International Theosophical Society. Therefore, the CTA does not retain the entire $40 or $60. The remainder covers various expenses, such as: printing and sending a number of French and English magazines to members who do not have access to a computer or printer, website hosting, banking, and office fees (i.e. printer ink cartridges, paper, etc…), and the need to comply with the Canadian Incorporations Act and our international regulations, by having an AGM and an annual convention, which is the main national gathering for all our members.
