Note:  Our current membership year is from October 1, 2013 to Sept 30, 2014 per our Constitution and Bylaws "Dues Section":  Renewals are due prior to or on Sept 30th each year and become past due/delinquent on December 1st (at which time written notices are to be sent informing that dues have not been received and advising that the member's name will be dropped from membership role if no payment has been received within 30 days of that same written notice).  Members and B.O.M. members must be members in good standing (current with their dues) in order to vote; therefore, it is important to make sure that you and/or your association's delegate are up-to-date to avoid not being represented at meetings.  Please review the information below (and on Officers Page) for your local association and make sure it is current, since this is the list that our Executive Secretary (Dr. Malcolm Sanford) uses as the official record for officers, delegates, meetings and contact information.  If changes are required, it is preferred that you please use the Update Info Form provided on this web page.  Changes submitted are not immediate; therefore, please allow up to 30 days for your changes to appear on FSBA website
