I thought some of you might be interested in the makeup of the current membership regarding type of membership, and where the members reside.
To determine this information, I have developed a database of the membership information provided on the cards filled out whenever a membership is paid. The first year the database contained the expiration of the current membership; this year it includes the membership card number and the expiration date of September, 2001. Thus, when a member pays dues and is already a member, I just check that the personal data is still current, change the expiration date to 2001, and enter the card number. If the person is not in the database, I enter the complete information from the card.
I have in the past asked range users if they were members, and was told that they had "left their card at home"; starting in October I can get their name and check the printout of the data to see if they are paid up.
