    Does Colorado's association even still exist? I filled out the membership form and sent in the check well over a month ago and have heard nothing -- not a peep from them.

    I'm beginning to think its just a good ole boys club and maybe they get together for a beer once in awhile but to ignore new members seem plain stupid.

    Oh well -- not necessary to belong to an association anyways.

    Are any of your state organizations active?

    I tried calling the one I sent the check to and left a message never got a call back. Honestly Im not a big "I need to belong to something" kind of person. I can take it or leave it. I was more wondering if it was a defunct group or if the state associations were something people participate in. I'll look up Jeff.

    Thanks Rich.

    I’d give everything more time. COVID screwed up a lot of things and slowed everything way down. Just my two cents

    COVID may have messed up a lot of things but not the postal service or internet. Over a month with no word and then no word after sending a message still. How long could that take for a simple reply?

    I’m just saying that many organizations are using it as an excuse. Where I am located, the postal service is all kinds of backed up. My states organization seems to be on hold as well and has canceled their functions
