We are now in the 2009 membership
year. Our goal this year is 86 members and we currently have 80 paid up
members. We need 7 more for 100%. If you have not paid your dues yet, you should
have received your second dues renewal notice from National. Please send them
in as soon as possible. If you paid your dues
and received a second dues notice, please disregard. This does
happen on occasion when Department doesnt process the renewals by the cut off
date set by National. They did get behind when the Department Membership
Coordinator was recently hospitalized. Thank you to everyone that has sent in
their dues. If your address or phone number changes, please let me know as
soon as possible so that I may make the changes with National and
Department. The following members have paid their dues for 2009:
