Have you paid dues for 2016?
So many New Year's Resolutions are quickly broken and forgotten, but one resolution you should work on is to keep up with your annual COMARA membership dues. Already 124 members are paid up for 2016, consisting of 114 members who paid in advance last year and 10 who have sent in their contributions this year. The COMARA Board of Directors wholeheartedly thanks each of you who are already paid up for 2016.
Your dues are needed to support COMARA's mission of keeping the COMSAT Legacy alive and paying for this year's operational expenses such as the COMARA web site. COMARA.ORG has lots of wonderful links to legacy materials, membership contact data, and retiree benefits information.
If you cannot remember whether or not you are already paid up, you can check your dues status by signing in to COMARA.ORG and seeing if the text at the top left side next to your name say "Dues paid in current year" or "Future dues paid".
For the 600 of you are not already paid up, please mail your dues check of $15 for 1 year or better yet $30 for 2 years to:
PO Box 34594
Bethesda, MD 20827
Don't forget you can also pay your dues via the PayPal link at the bottom of the COMARA home page.
