Not Getting Your Weekly Email?



Many SLBC memberships expire on 12/31 of each year. In the past we were able to offer a grace period, however, as we transition to our new website it has been necessary to have the expiration date coincide with the end date of the membership. This also applies to our more recent members whose membership expires on the anniversary of their joining. Expired members, whether they are on the 12/31 or the anniversary process will not receive emails after their membership expiration date.
