The current board of directors is considering to make the membership form ONLINE for joining, as well as updating information in the membership form previously submitted. We envision an increase array of benefits for online access when we are able to offer this level of development. When the time comes for this approach we will send communication to every and each member to move the membership form to ONLINE management. In case of any issues, concerns or suggestions for this stage of further development, please submit them via email message to firstname.lastname@example.org
