2018-19 Pledges Due
Pledge forms for 2019-20 were distributed at the Annual Meeting and are being mailed out this week. In addition to giving our time and energy to TEMV, one of the most important things we can do is to commit to a membership pledge. These pledges are the regular income on which we all rely. Whether this is your first-time membership or you have been a member for decades, we hope that you will answer the call to renew our collective covenant with each other. Any outstanding pledges for 2018-19 were due by April 30, the end of our fiscal year. You may pay online, or contact Helen, email@example.com.
