I tried last month to renew online and the pay pall thing would not work for me. Tried again last week, still no good. Down loaded the form today to do it the old fashioned way. Oh by the way the form has the old address on it so remember to send it to the right place.

Regarding membership renewal reminders ? I believe the last two 2005
newsletter issues did remind members and a bright orange neon renewal
form with self addressed envelope was also provided. Come 2006 we
opted not to send another reminder since the website "members only"
section had a change in passwords thereby removing some incentive for
renewing for those "slow movers." Also we're making great strides in
saving the club money to be better spent on 2006 paid members. I
periodically post reminders here on the Yahoo forum, much to the
chagrin of some and have even been lovingly called a "nag." I'm not
sure what more I can do or could have done, but I appreciate your
Regarding the roster (also know as the member listing) ? Since the
2006 version will include both 2005 & 2006 members (but will only be
sent to 2006 paid members) it will be rather massive, nearly 380
members. Just like last year it will be listed alphabetically by
last name, then first name, the address, phone number and email. I
believe your suggestion has good merit, the ability to see regional
members at a glance, and I will therefore add a separate column for
State. This will save the added expense of additional pages and
provide an easier method for searching members in your area. So when
you peruse the roster simply take an orange highlighter to all the
fine finned friends in your fine state. I hope this is an adequate
compromise for you mate. I try very hard to accommodate all club
members and at the same time need to balance actions by taking into
account the financials, international universal benefit, and what the
next IAOC prez & board will inherit. Thanks again for your
suggestions Vic.
