Shipping schedule to receive your package.

As a non-profit organization we need to manage our expenses carefully.  As such we have determined that daily trips to the post office are not a wise use of our money or our time.  With that said we have worked out the following shipping schedule for membership packages as shown below.

VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE SEND ALL THREE FORMS TOGETHER IN ONE FAX OR EMAIL WITHIN 10 DAYS OF PAYING MEMBERSHIP FEE.  If you send the forms separately on different days it makes it much harder to track your membership.

If you need your package urgently please contact us at and we will send you an invoice calculated from your personal requirements and shipping terms.
