RE: [DML] New DOA President & Vice-President



Sorry to hear about the job situation Marc!  Hope it doesn't last long!

 

We're at 3 magazines per year currently, and looking into the viability of
going back to the quarterly publications of old, if we can get enough
content.

 

What if the membership fee included a show discount for DCS 2010?  I'll
discuss it with Ken, but I think something could be arranged.

 

I'll keep everyone posted,

Josh

Sorry Bud.. Recently unemployed, so I need to be more careful with my
money.. $75 a year for a magazine (I think it is 2 issues now?!) and a
discount on a events that have yet to be determined are just not worth it
for me.

As I said last year to Ken Baker, I am going to "wait and see".
