WHERE DOES MY MEMBERSHIP MONEY GO?
One of the frequently asked questions is what the State Association does with the Membership money received from the Members.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP.
As with any volunteer-based associations, time and peoplepower is a scarce resource. We need people to help implement new ideas. The best way to affect positive changes that you would like to see, is to get involved. Come along to your local Branch meetings and put your ideas forward. Share your ideas with others and get people talking. If the Branch and other Members see the merit in your ideas, they can come to fruition. We understand that not all people can make it to meetings due to other commitments. If you fall into this category, put your ideas down in an email. Your Branch Management Committee will bring your correspondence up at the next meeting.
THERE IS NO LOCAL BRANCH IN MY AREA AND I WOULD LIKE TO START ONE.
If you and a group of like-minded people would like to form a local Branch, we would love to talk to you. The best place to start is to jot down your ideas along with the names of people that would like to be the founding members of your local Branch.
