Happy New Year 2021
Want to take a moment and say Thanks to everyone in our IFMA-Memphis family. Through the trials of 2020, we have maintained our membership level and held a couple of outings. The Golf event was a great sucess once again. I have truely missed seeing everyone the past year. It does not appear that 2021 will allow us to get together for at least a month or so. Memphis is once again on restrictions utill January 22, 2021.
Bearing that in mind, we have reduced the annual membership dues for the local chapter dues. We mainly use that money to help fund the free lunch programs and since we are not meeting monthly we felt a reduction was in order. This went into effect in July 2020. So as you renew your IFMA.org membership, the local chapter dues will reflect the reduced rate.
If you have found yourself on hard times during this past year, please do not hesitate to reach out so we can discuss. We have a few options to help out each other.
I will try to communicate to the Chapter on a monthly basis to help share stories and infromation I find useful - Please see the links below for some great articles.
