2 Newsletter 33 3 From the Treasurer After the recent steps toward more European union and free trade (Maastricht and all that) the transfer of money from one European country to another has been made much more difficult (!) for common people as we are, especially for small amounts. Those above are facsimiles of some of the results: Pl. 1: Lit. 28,500 charged on US $ 24 (= ca. Lit. 30,000) Pl. 2: Lit. 20,000 charged on US $ 60 (= ca. Lit. 90,000) For what I can undestand, after some experience, these are the recommendations for the payment of fees inside the European community (si fa per dire): 1. Carefully avoid this kind of payment (Eurocheqe and similia): 2. Do NOT use the Bank account (direct money transfer). 3. Use the Post account in the right way, that is, something like this: 4. Good luck to all of us. P.S.: Please do not forget the fees for 1994, and arrears!
