We are happy to report that our fall membership campaign has yielded 108 member renewals for 2019 which means we have only 45 members yet to renew.
We thought it appropriate to define our next steps in our efforts to get 100% membership renewal.
Per the discussion on Monday during the HBA Board meeting by the attending Board members, club members who have not renewed their HBA membership within 60 days after their membership due date of November 1st will have their membership status changed to lapsed until renewed.
A lapsed member will no longer receive automatic renewal notices, will no longer appear in member directories, will not be able to register for RAGBRAI and will no longer be allowed to view member only pages, add comments to blog pages, or post or reply to forum topics. A lapsed member can restore their membership by paying the renewal fee.
Members who have not yet renewed their memberships will get two more email notices asking them to renew (7 days past due on November 7, 2018, and at 60 days past due on December 30, 2018).
We hope you continue your HBA membership in 2019 and join in on one of the many activities sponsored by this club.
