IT'S TIME TO RENEW
New & Renewal
Other news items…The dues notice/membership form for the current year is attached. The good news is that no increases have been adopted. Please read the form carefully and choose the level of membership you require. Remember, if you are a contractor and you’ve paid for web services (link, members page, …) in a previous year, all you need is the basic membership.
In the coming year, membership meetings will be rotating monthly in the future. On months when there are activities planned such as the golf tournament, FRSA convention, Christmas, or the big summer vacation months there will be no meeting. As soon as we have a calendar put together we’ll send it on to you. In the meantime we’ll keep sending you meeting notices and our non-award winning Snooper.
Planning is starting on the golf tournament for late March or early April, start thinking about and putting your foursome together.
I’d like to remind every member that we operate a swap shop on the website. Whether you are a Contractor or Associate with a little bit of this or that you want to sell, list it on the website. This service is free of charge to all NEFRSA members.
