Toronto. For a handful of our members, their email addresses are mia – missing in action. Over the past months, Editor Bob Lansdale has stepped up to the COVID-19 situation and promoted extra issues and supplements be made as pdf files to be sent only to members. I added a tag on our distribution service (MailChimp) after much prodding to ensure this members-only guideline could be followed.
Realizing many members without emails on file would see nothing from the society and to paraphrase the US Military slogan as “Leave No One Behind”, Bob campaigned to send a hard copy of all five issues of volume 46 (a custom mix of full colour and black and white pages re-done by Bob personally) to all members without an email. On investigation, this came down to a mere handful so a decision was made to also offer the hard copy to those with email addresses and the caveat to send a copy only if requested, helping limit the cost and number of copies to be mailed.
Our press agent (Aries) was willing to package and deliver this annual, while our membership secretary offered to mail all issues. Sadly, we are still missing a few emails for some members. If you happen to be one (i.e. you saw nothing from MailChimp about the pdf copies of the journal or supplements) then email me at email@example.com and I will see that your address goes to both MailChimp and our Membership Secretary (and is correctly tagged).
Not a member? Easy-peasy, just break out your plastic (VISA, MasterCard, etc.), follow the rules at the upper right of this page and sign up via PayPal (no PayPal account needed – we will pay the modest fee). Membership is an incredible bargain. Period!
