Message from Our President Dear Members, Please join us in January as we elect executive committee members and vote on constitutional changes. If you're interested in serving our round table in some capacity, please let us know. It has been my great honor to serve the Richmond Civil War Round Table over the past three years. My wish at the new year for the RCWRT is that it will continue to thrive and attract new members to study the Civil War, the most important historical event in our country's history after its founding. I can think of no one nicer to pass the gavel to than Rob Monroe, and after him, Doug Crenshaw, and after him Ulli Baumann. We are truly blessed. Elaine
A Message from our Acting Secretary Andy Keller Happy new year. With the new year comes not only a new dues year but a change in the annual dues due date. If the proposed changes to our Constitution are approved this month, then the new dues due date will be January 31 and any dues postmarked after that date with incur a late fee of $25.00. Traditionally you were asked to include a new membership form with each due's submission. I am agreeable to waiving that requirement if you have no information to update and your check makes it clear what your dues are for. Since we have reduced the number of member categories that should require little or no explanation. That being the case, I would encourage you to consider using your bank's bill pay service to automatically pay your dues for you on an annual basis each January, so you do not have to worry about it and also save the cost of the postage which is also expected to go up again soon. If you are a current individual member the dues remain $35. If you are a couple your dues are $45. In either case have the dues mailed to: Andy Keller, RCWRT Secretary 9701 Fireside Drive Glen Allen, VA 23060-6280 Again all dues must be postmarked by January 31 to avoid a late fee. I look forward to seeing you at our meeting on January 8th when you may pay your dues in person. Andy
