~ ASSOCIATION NOTICES ~
The 2018 reunion originally planned for San Antonio, TX in mid
November has been cancelled due to not being able to come to
amicable terms with the hotel(s) that we considered for the reunion.
They all wanted a fee to be paid if we cancelled after signing the
contract, the amount
being more than our treasury balance. We are requesting suggestions
/ locations for the upcoming year 2019. Your replies should also
contain a volunteer / boots on the ground.

of first year dues)
and therefore the application is sitting
dormant. If you have applied and not
heard anything back, this may be the
reason. Applications will not be

listed as not in good standing after a
dues lapse of one year. Members not in good standing must pay
two years dues to be reinstated to good

in a new application thinking that this
step can be by-passed. If you have a
