Note for 2022 travel fees

The Servas Canada Board passed a motion on August 22, 2021 in response to COVID-19, to waive the fee for e-stamps issued in 2021 and 2022. Note, however, that members will still be required to update their Letters of Introduction (LOIs) and obtain an e-stamp, in order to request hosting. 

Approved motion:

The fees for e-stamps issued in 2021 and 2022 for approved LOIs will be suspended. Any member submitting payment will be offered a refund.”
