Please be sure you have formally joined the NY Chapter. It's free & easy! Go to the Main Forums page - scroll down to NY Chapter & under the Chapter is a link - "Join Chapter". It makes you state a reason why - whatever you enter is fine. I don't know why it does that but all membership requests will be honored.
I really need to get an accurate count of the members here. If you're in a state w/o a Chapter (NJ/PA) or a a former NY resident & left your heart here that's fine too!
Thanks for reading this & mostly, thanks for joining!
