Your HIA Membership is Expiring !
Renew Now and Avoid the Rush !
Fellow HIA Members:
All HIA memberships are expiring on September 30, 2009 (except for the few folks who have three-year memberships). There will be long lines at the meeting check-in table as everyone tries to renew for our next fiscal year: Oct.1, 2009 to Sept. 30, 2010. You can avoid those long lines by mailing a check now to our HIA Treasurer.
- Send $75.00 for a new One-year Membership, covering 10/01/2009 – 9/30/2010.
- If you want to sign up for Three years, send $195.00.
- If you want to add an immediate family member, just add $10.00 to your payment.
- Make your check payable to "H.I.A."
Mail them to:
Jerry Wendelin, HIA Treasurer
1724 Indiana Street
Houston, TX 77006
People sometimes ask, "If I don’t attend any HIA meetings for, say, 6 months, then when I do attend a meeting will I still have to pay the whole $75 for the entire fiscal year?" The answer is Yes, you will….. unless you choose to pay on a meeting-by-meeting basis (the per-meeting attendance fee is $15 per meeting).
Almost all of our membership fee money goes toward the cost of our rooms at the University of Houston. For each Saturday that we meet at the U of H, we donate $500 to the Bauer College of Business’ scholarship fund. Clearly, your $75 annual membership fee is (a) very important to the continuation of the HIA, and (b) a real bargain for the investment education we share. We appreciate your participation!
Yours, — Jerry Wendelin, Treasurer
