No one is up-to-date with their membership. The memberships paid in 2010 ran out in 2010, and we only now request that you do sign up for 2011. It is completely voluntary and you can choose to skip 2011, but we need your help to get the election process handled in a proper way.
- we haven't withdrawn access to the memberspecific forums for anyone, but will do so once we go into 2012, so if you're not up-to-date with your 2012 membership fee you will eventually see your access to the member specific forums go
- we are inviting all 2010 members to participate in the nomination of new BOD members
- even non-members can be nominated (if you were a member in 2010)
- elected BOD members must settle their membership 2012 before Dec 31, 2011
ps. One idea we had to identify members was to allow profile pictures only for members. It hasn't been voted, but it may come. You're right Lynn, it would be good to easily see who's a member and who is not. Let's see if we can find an easy way to administer that.
