SPECIAL MEMBERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT:
By authority of the National President, all requests to convert to Life Member are hereby suspended, effective October 1, 2022. This action has been deemed necessary due to the percentage ratio of Life Members/Total Members, which currently exceeds 56%. With the Investment market down, Regular membership dues are our only source of cash flow.
If you are still interested in becoming a life member, please notify the Administrative office at email@example.com and your name will be placed on a list. As current Life Members leave us, the first person on the list becomes eligible. Life Members are currently 56+% of total membership. This suspension is subject to periodic review by the National President and the Board of Trustees.
