We know it’s been a long wait for some of you, but the newly re-designed THS membership cards are “in the mail” for most folks (about 75% of the membership). Examples of the new regular Member card and Life Member card are below. We’ll be doing our last order for initial fulfillment of current members in early September with an expected delivery date to members by mid-October.
Why the delay for that final 25% (mostly new members, but a few reprints had to be reordered impacting older members)? We want to fulfill as many members as possible, and we’re running a raffle for a free Virginia Edition with a deadline for entry of August 31st. All regular and Life active members (Supporting members and Directors of the Society do not qualify for an entry) by August 31st will receive at least one entry in the raffle for a free Virginia Edition of Heinlein’s collected works (which also includes free access to the online Heinlein Archives). All first time members who join by August 31st will receive a second entry in the Virginia Edition raffle. We want to be sure that all those new and returning members get their new THS membership card in a timely fashion as part of this initial fulfillment, so we’re holding open that last order until September 1.
