Subject: It is Incomprehensible how the new 2016 NCRA staff could set the JCR Magazine classified ad rate at $8 per word making the ads totally unaffordable to NCRA members. NCRA banned JCR Magazine classified ads from December of 2016 to March of 2017. In March of 2017 NCRA re-introduced the JCR Magazine classified ads with a 500% ad rate increase from $2 per word in December of 2015 to $10 per word in March of 2018 for a combination JCR Magazine classified ad and an on-line classified ad. The new ad rate of $10 per word was broken down as $8 per word for the JCR Magazine classified ad and $2 per word for the on-line classified ad. It has been one year since the JCR Magazine classified ads have been re-introduced into JCR Magazine. So the JCR Magazine classified ads have been again offered for the past one year. In December of 2015 there were 52 JCR Magazine classified ads. In March of 2018 there was 1 JCR Magazine classified ad -- a 98% loss of 51 of 52 advertisers. It is incomprehensible how the new 2016 NCRA staff could set the JCR Magazine classified ad rate at $8.00 per word making the ads totally unaffordable to NCRA members.
