Notes:

1. These building use charges do not apply to the Annandale Cooperative Preschool and the United College Ministries of Northern Virginia. LRUCC has separate specific agreements with those organizations for use of space in the building

2. Article XIII of the LRUCC Constitution and By-Laws defines and states requirements for “Auxiliary Organizations”. All other organizations are considered outside groups for purposes of these building use charges. The fact that one or more members of an organization are also members of LRUCC does not alter this distinction.

3. An individual may also request and be approved for use of portions of the LRUCC building for personal use, except that no commercial use of the building may be authorized.

4. These charges do not apply to the Potomac Association, the Central Atlantic Conference, or to Committees of either of these organizations, since they are directly supported by LRUCC funding.

5. These charges do not apply to organizations supported by LRUCC benevolence disbursements. However, they shall be noted for the record.

6. These charges do not apply to staging for or conducting religious services (e.g., weddings, baptisms, memorial services, etc) of LRUCC members nor do they apply for receptions sponsored by LRUCC in conjunction with these services. They do apply to privately sponsored wedding receptions.

7. These charges may be reduced or waived, if considered appropriate by the pastor(s) or the Board of Trustees. However, in all such cases, the amount of building use income waived shall be considered a benevolence to the group involved and reported within LRUCC as such.
