Newsletter 2020

Thank you!
A big Thank you to the many members who have already renewed their membership for 2021. Notice of the special “Loyalty Renewal Bonus” was included with the dues renewal which all members received by mail in October.
For those members who haven’t yet renewed, be sure to take advantage of the special Loyalty Renewal Bonus savings offered.  It’s a great savings for yourself and a great help to the EC Events team in planning events for 2021.  With the recent promising vaccine news our team is looking forward with anticipation to a return to normality.  
I look forward to greeting each of you in person at one of our marquee events soon!
Thank you once again!
Warm regards,
Betsy Greene
