“Members who have reached the age of 90 will not be required to pay the membership fee for the years following their 90th birthday, but will have all the rights and obligations of membership”.
Therefore, Members who celebrate their 90th birthday, and advise the office of this achievement, will become “GOLDEN MEMBERS” and future annual dues will be waived.
