Is this going to be your last issue of Connections? As many of you may recall, three years ago we ran an article titled "This Is the Last Issue of Connections" as an April Fools' joke because that Friday was April 1st. Remarkably, we received more than 100 complaints via email or phone telling us how disappointed our readers were that the weekly publication was being discontinued, which necessitated response emails and phone calls assuring everyone that we were only kidding.
That being said, since today is March 29th, we assure you that this time our inquiry above is no joke. Numerous reminders during the past three months advised that membership fees for 2019 are due by this Sunday, March 31, so if we haven't received your renewal payment yet, your company's benefits will be terminated on Monday, April 1st, which includes receiving the weekly issues of Connections.
If you have not paid your 2019 DPHA dues yet, it is not too late, but you should also be aware that there will now be a 3 or 4 day delay in getting your membership benefits re-established. As you know, dues are only $715 per year and we believe this is an incredible value given the benefits that the Association offers its members. If you are unsure as to whether or not you renewed your membership for this year and don't want to take a chance that your issues of Connections will be discontinued and your other member benefits terminated, contact Rebekah Covay now at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 630-854-3911 (if you get her voice mail, please leave a message). We truly appreciate everyone's past support, and hope we count on your participation again in 2019.
