**Notice: Our monthly meetings are open to anyone who would like to attend. However, after two meetings, you will be asked to join our Chapter. Chapter Dues are $50.00 per year. If you choose not to join our Chapter, you are still welcome to attend, but the Chapter Dinner Meeting cost will be $40.00.

Once again, we would like to give back to our membership.  We are offering 5 free admissions to our 2020 SEMCACFE Annual Conference scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  The rules to qualify are:

 1) You must be a member of the local chapter and your dues must be paid by the end of the October 10th meeting. This gives you an opportunity to pay your dues at the meeting if you have not yet paid.

 2) The free admissions will be awarded to the top 5 members who have attended the most meetings between October 2019 and March 2020.  If there are more than 5 members that qualify there will be a drawing to determine the winners.
