| Centurion Fund Aids Endowment
A few years ago the AFPAAA Board of Directors challenged a committee made up of C B Kelly and our late friends Charlie Powers and John Gulick to develop a way to promote more awareness of and add to the coffers of AFPAAA's Endowment Fund.
Thus, the Centurions were born.
To become a Centurion members simply donate $100 to the AFPAAA Endowment Fund. In return, at the next annual meeting, one Centurion donor's name will be drawn and he or she will receive a full refund of their annual meeting registration fee. (The refund can be applied to the current or next annual meeting.)
It is hoped that the public drawing and attendent publicity will attract further contributions. If even half of each meeting's attendees join the Centurions, the program would earn about $5000 per annual meeting, a substantial addition to the foundation.
For Annual Meeting reservation and registration details go to Annual Meeting
To make a Centurion donation: Send your check for $100.00 (payable to Endowment Fund) to: AFPAAA Centurions, Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 447, Locust Grove, VA 22508-0447. Be sure to clearly mark your check "Centurion"
| Online Newsletter Delivery Saves $'s
You can help reduce AFPAAA's printing and mailing costs by "subscribing" to On-line Delivery of the association's quarterly newsletter.
Here's how it works. The same day a Newsletter is sent to the printer, you will receive a brief "Publication Alert" e-mail that contains a link from which you can immediately download the new Newsletter as a PDF file. Most computers have the Adobe PDF Reader software installed. If you do not, we provide a link for a FREE download. It's that simple!
You can sign up for On-line Delivery at the Member Update page.
Remember, when you subscribe, you will not get the newsletter via "snail mail" but, you will help AFPAAA save money, and you'll get the newsletter weeks earlier too!
