SCA extends memberships for many Katrina-affected members

For those in the areas where the U.S. Postal Service has suspended mail delivery, the SCA will place memberships temporarily into hiatus so that members are not paying for newsletters that are not able to be delivered.

Linda Moore, President of the SCA, writes:

Due to the recent disaster along the Gulf Coast of the United States, the US Postal Service has directed that mail not be delivered within certain ranges of zip codes in the affected areas.

The SCA Board of Directors has been asked to consider actions to prevent members in the affected areas from having their memberships counting down during a time in which no publications will be delivered. Therefore they have directed that those memberships will be placed on hiatus without loss of time remaining until the mailing ban is lifted.

As members in the affected areas re-establish a valid mailing address, the hiatus will end and membership extended for the appropriate time remaining.

Members should notify the Corporate office of their new, valid mailing address in writing, fax, or online once it is available.

Please feel free to contact the Corporate Office if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.
