New members - You should receive the latest Journal within a couple of weeks. After that, you will be on the regular mailing list for the normal mailings of the Journal as they are produced. Issues are published and sent as such, Winter #1, Spring #2, Summer #3, Fall #4. Please note the mailing label when you receive your first issue of the Journal. It will show your expiration date which will also be the LAST Journal you will receive unless you renew. For example, EX 3 - 2013 - would mean your last issue would be the Summer #3 issue of 2013. Though it seems confusing, rest assured, we send out renewal reminders before your membership expires.
MEMBERSHIPS MUST BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY FROM OTHER MERCHANDISE OR SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE APPLIED TO MEMBERSHIP
