         Membership Report
We continue to enjoy the opportunity to provide information about our Chapter to a dramatically increasing number of new FMCA members. Approximately one-half of our active membership is represented by those members holding a “First Year Free” membership.
The way our membership administration system works is that First Year Free memberships are converted to “Regular” memberships and an invoice is issued 90 days prior to the renewal date. Since this initial period is designed to allow new FMCA members to learn more about the Club before they make a financial commitment. As a result, the number of lapsed and non-renewed memberships tends to show a relatively high attrition rate. Nonetheless, we welcome new FMCA members and encourage them to visit our website and technical forum and also engage in our social media pres- ence with the hopes that they will become active and supportive members.
 The membership report (at right) reflects membership change from March of this year.

 Financial Report
Members with a background in bookkeeping and/or accounting are encouraged to consider serving as Chapter Treasurer. The Club uses a fully-automated membership administration system that includes credit card process- ing and integrated transactions with the Aplos non-profit accounting system. It, in turn, is integrated with our bank- ing account to minimize manual transaction processing. Some members do pay by check requiring some manual posting and deposits. Please contact President Rod Kenly if interested in this officer position.
