Contract Review

Brother Ed Padgett incorrectly indicated that copies of the new T/A'd contract would be available for review and receipt from him and his blog later today. Members and members only will receive a copy in the mail to ensure that ONLY members receive the new language to consider for ratification.

If any member has changed his or her address recently, please notify Secretary Treasurer, Linard Williams or myself immediately and be sure to receive your copy.

Our ratification meeting is tentatively scheduled for Monday, November 21, 2011. Location and time to follow.
