This just in from Bobo, ISSCA Public Relations Officer:
Hello all! Keep on the lookout for your membership badge, welcome letter, and ISSCA sticker in the mail! After a few false starts with an un-cooperative laminating machine the first mailing has gone, and if you haven't received your membership kit yet, hang in there and you should see it shortly. We have to thank Gary Cardarelli's Sister-in-law for the really cool (I think) background for the membership badge this year. I'd like to throw out the challenge to any of you creative members out there to submit ideas for next year's membership badge background. I think it would be neat to have a different background each year!
Bob Fandetti, Director, Region 9, and Public Relations Officer.
All but ten have gone out (ran out of stamps) and they will go tomorrow. I'm truly sorry if i missed anyone with a welcome e-mail, it has been a chore getting everything in place for mailings from my house/office..........yeah, I know, no excuse!
Hang in there, you should be receiving something any day now.
