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.
