General Information

A frequently asked question is what is the difference between USA Membership and International Membership. The answer is that if you sign up for only USA Membership all of the participants on your mailing will be in the USA. If you sign up for only International Membership a large number of the participants will be in Canada and foreign countries. A combination of both will result in a guaranteed combination of USA and International participants. This has all come about because some participants were troubled by the 49 cent USA postage rate vs. $1.15 International postage rate.
