LMs who joined in 2019 = 21 LMs who joined in 2020 = 8 LMs who joined in 2021 = 10 LMs who joined in 2022 = 3 Honorary Members = 1
Active Members for 2022 = 11   INACTIVE Members since Dec 2020  = 7
 Honorary & Life Members Total   =   43 Potential Members Total =  7 INACTIVE Members Total  =  8 Membership Status updated:  Apr 21, 2022
The current 2022 Alamo Chapter Membership Status Roster lists 70 names that include all Honorary, Life, Active, Inactive, and Potential Members.  This Roster total was down from the December 2020 Roster - which had a total or 112 names listed.  This reduction was due to eliminating Inactive and Potential individuals who had been carried on the 2020 Roster for more than 3 years - with no participation or no e-mail replies prior to January 2021.  Effective January 2022, the Roster was  further scrubbed by removing Inactive names who had not paid dues in over 2 years, along with Potential names who had not respond to Chapter e-mails in over 2 years.  Active Membership (still only $20.00 - Annually) covers the year when paid, and good for January - December of that year.  Of course, Life Membership is always an option.  Just open the Alamo Chapter Membership Application (PDF) Form, complete everything that is applicable, and mail your Annual or Life Membership check to the address shown on the Application Form.
