For the first time since I became the Chair of the Life Membership Committee, we acquired over one hundred new regular and upgraded members in one year. We receive 104 new regular Life Members and four new or upgrades to President Life Member. The increase for regular Life Members was 9%. The President Life Members was a 3% decrease. As a result, the income to the USJF Endowment Fund was $29,406.80, after the expense of paying for plaques, engraving, cards, lapel pins, patches and postage.
