Attention Unit Membership Chairs

Department has been receiving an abundance of membership applications that are not complete!  When we receive incomplete applications they are mailed back to the membership chair with a credit memo with the request that the COMPLETED application, new transmittal form, and copy of the credit memo be sent back to Department.  This causes significant delays, extra time for Department staff, and extra expense. 

Please see the Application Instruction Sheet provided CLICK HERE

New Transmittal Instructions – Transmittal Instructions 2020

Department reserves the right to mail back your entire membership submission if all parts are not complete and correct.
