ARTICLE XXVI. CERTIFICATION OF TREASURER OF ASSOCIATION
The following certification form shall be used by the Association when certifying membership dues:
CERTIFICATION OF TREASURER OF THE ASSOCIATION

TREASURER OF THE HOUSE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
Date of Delivery to University
Such written certification must be delivered to the Employer no later than August in any year to become effective in the following July through June period.
Payroll deductions shall begin in September and be one-tenth (1/10) of the certified dues and shall be taken from the following ten (10) paychecks. The initial deduction for any employee shall not begin unless both (1) a properly executed "Voluntary Authorization for Deduction of Dues" and (2) the amount of monthly membership dues certified by the treasurer of the Association has been delivered to the University at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the last pay day of the calendar month. Changes in the amount of the monthly membership dues must be delivered to the University at a place designated by the University at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the last pay day of the calendar month before the change will become effective.
An employee may revoke the employee's "Voluntary Authorization Deduction of Dues" at any time by written notification to the Employer on a form provided by the Employer. Payroll deductions shall terminate when a revocation has been delivered to the University Payroll Office at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the last payday of the calendar month. The Employer shall provide a copy of any revocation request to the HOA within five (5) days of receipt.
In the event that there are not sufficient months to take ten (10) deductions, the remaining amount will be taken from the July pay of the next fiscal year or the member's last payroll, regardless of month.
Remittance of amounts deducted shall be made via wire transfer to the Association's bank by the fifteenth (15th) of the month following the month of deduction, together with a list of names and the amount deducted for each employee for whom a deduction was made.
The Employer shall not be liable to the Association for the remittance or payment of any sum other than that constituting actual deductions from salary.
The Association shall indemnify and save the Employer harmless from any liability resulting from any and all claims, demands, suits, or any other action arising from compliance with this Article, or in reliance on any notice or authorization furnished under this Article. The Association specifically agrees to indemnify and hold the Employer harmless for any liability arising under MCL 423.210, as amended effective 91 days after adjournment of the 2012 regular session sine die, including but not limited to damages, court costs and reasonable attorney fees awarded to a plaintiff under MCL 423.210(10).
The Association specifically agrees to make whatever adjustments are necessary directly with any employee who may, as a result of this deduction procedure, pay more or less than the Association's annual dues.
Notwithstanding the execution and delivery of the Voluntary Authorization for Deduction of Association Dues form, an employee may voluntarily revoke previously authorized payroll deductions by submitting written notification to the Employer. The Employer shall provide a copy of any revocation request to the HOA within five (5) days of receipt. Payroll deductions shall terminate when a revocation has been delivered to the University Payroll Office at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the last payday of the calendar month. Unless revoked by the employee, dues deduction authorizations shall remain in effect for the duration of the employee's employment as a House Officer.
