For a variety of reasons, we will be retiring the legacy Yahoo Groups soon! Moving forward, our new registration / Membership Management System, Neon CRM / Z2 Systems, would be the system we’ll be using for member communications. So, those of you who are NOT YET in the Neon CRM System, please create a new account or log into your current account that you already have and update/add email(s) you’d like us to use to communicate with you.
