    New National CGS Development Director Maureen Howard has announced that in the future all CGS memberships will expire  October 1.  In all cases membership expiration dates will be extended rather than shortened.
   Tax-deductible contributions to the CGS Education Fund are encouraged, but making such a contribution does not constitute a renewal of membership.  To be a member of CGS you must send $25 each year for membership.  This is a U.S. government legal requirement for our type of organization.   Anyone who is a member of the national organization is automatically a member of our local chapter.  Contributors to the CGS
Education Fund will be put on the list to receive both the national and the local newsletter.
    All membership renewals should be sent to the national CGS office, 418 Seventh Street SE, Washington DC 2003.  Tax-deductible contributions to the CGS Education Fund should be sent to the same Washington address and should be clearly marked “for the Education Fund.”  You can also indicate on your check that you would like your Education Fund contribution to be
forwarded back to the St. Louis chapter.
    If you wish, you can make contributions directly to our St. Louis chapter by sending a check for “CGS-St. Louis” to our chapter Treasurer David Oughton, 1130 Big Sky Drive, Fenton MO 63026, but such contributions
are not tax-deductible and are not regarded as membership renewals.
Contributions for those purposes must be sent to the national office in Washington.
