Correspondence from the Club

Some Members are reporting that they are not getting all the correspondence from the Club.
Things that go amiss most often seem to be E-Mail Chits (you receive these when you bill items to your member account), monthly Member Statements or Club text messages.
We find most of the lost correspondence goes to junk mail, but if you are having difficulty receiving mail from the Club please contact the Secretary.
