A FLICK OF THE PEN BUILDS THE COFFERS

Jamie Padula, ATA Chapter & Division Relations Manager, issued our 2014 Chapter Rebate this month. Headquarters reviewed ATA’s 2014 membership database to calculate our chapter’s annual 10% rebate http://www.atanet.org.

The chapter rebate is based on the 2014 membership renewal forms. Members do not always elect a chapter to receive a rebate and not all members pay the same dues (e.g. students, two members in one household, etc.) This might explain some discrepancies between the estimated number of ATA members in our chapter and the Headquarter’s data. Remember to check NOTA when you renew for the 2015 rebate.

Our check totals $825.00. A tip of the hat to Jill, Membership Chair and Reinhold, trusted treasurer, who helped make this happen. We thank Jamie and you who continue to support ATA and the local chapter.
