Renewals, Address Changes, Mail Returns
There are still a number of members who have not sent in their renewals for 2010. Your renewal date is above your name on the Buzz. We would appreciate your attention to renewing your membership as your dues pay only 66% of the cost for the editing, printing and mailing of your Buzz each year.
A couple of other items that need to be mentioned are address changes and mail returns. We are charged by the Post Office for all returned issues of the Buzz because of an address change or because a member is “temporarily away”. If an issue is returned because of an address change, an effort is made to re-send it to the new address which means additional postage has to be paid to re-send it. This also means your issue will be delayed in getting to you.
If an issue is returned because the member is “temporarily away”, that issue will not be re-mailed as it may be returned again resulting in more postage being paid. If you are going to be “temporarily away”, please notify me when you leave and again when you return. I will hold your issues until your return and send them in one package.
Thank you for your renewal and for providing updated information so that your Buzz can be delivered in a timely manner.
