Lone Star Daylily Bucks Program
The Lone Star Daylily Society Executive Board proposed an incentive program to the membership in 2005. The Program was an effort to encourage members to participate in the activities of the Society. The Program was adopted by vote of the membership and became effective October 1, 2005. The Program is referred to as the Lone Star Daylily Bucks Program.

The awarded amount of Daylily Bucks for each Award Category is established by the membership, or in some cases, the President of the Society, and may change from time to time.
Award Period: Daylily Bucks are earned from August 1st to July 31st of the following year. This period is designated as the Award Period.
Award Value: The Executive Board will meet near the end of the Award Period and establish a real dollar value for the Daylily Bucks. Since the funds of the Society will fluctuate from year to year, the value of the Daylily Bucks must be determined each Award Period. The President of the Society or designate will present the Executive Board’s recommendaation to the membership. Approval of the Daylily Buck’s value will be by vote of the membership for each Award Period.
Redemption: At the end of the Award Period, accrued Daylily Bucks are tallied for each member. Daylily Bucks are intended to be used to purchase Gift plant(s), usually in October of each year, or for other uses which the Society may deem appropriate.
As the Lone Star Daylily Society is a non-profit corporation and no part of the net earnings of the corporation shall inure to the benefits of any member, the members that purchase plants must agree to take particularly good care of their plants and return the increase to the society usually within (3) years. The increase will be used to purchase plants for the society’s activities.
(For example: If Daylily Bucks are determined to be equal to $0.50 each and you have accumulated 100 Daylily Bucks for the Award Period, your real dollar value award will be $50.00. You may then select a $50.00 Gift Daylily Plant. Any unused Daylily Bucks will be deleted by the program administrator on December 31 of the year awarded.
