September 22 – Your ballots for 2017 MAFCA Board of Directors and membership renewal notices are now in the mail. Please make sure you return your ballots postmarked no later than October 15, 2016.
You will notice a new option on your membership renewal form. Beginning with the January / February issue of The Restorer magazine, MAFCA will be
offering an electronic version of the magazine in addition to the hard copy
full color magazine. The renewal form gives you the option of adding an electronic copy for only
$5 more. You will be able to view this copy with any Wi-Fi capable device – phone,
tablet, or computer. The cost of membership has not changed; it remains $40 for U.S.
Members and $50 for Canadian / Mexican Members. If you desire to add the electronic
version it would be $45 for US and $55 for Canada/Mexico. The electronic copy will
remain on the web for 3 years.
If you have any questions about these options, contact MAFCA headquarters by email at
info @ mafca.com or by phone (562) 697-2712 Monday - Friday from 10AM to 4PM Pacific time.
Renewal of your membership on time is very important. Please renew by December 31, 2016. We send the printer a listing of all active members at the end of December and
The Restorer is mailed to them from the printer.
Those who fail to renew on time and send in their renewals late require a special mailing of the January / February
magazine. This involves separate processing and mailing from the office at an additional cost. In the past, those who pay on time have absorbed the
cost of those who did not.
This isn't fair, so a $5 late fee will be charged to those renewing after December 31.
Avoid the late fee and renew on time.

It wil be available as a complete volume for $55 or just the Revision 4 update that you can add to your existing Standards for $30, both plus shipping.
