Hi Phil,

Thank you for your feedback as well!

I have noted that I did not enter the "period" that a corporation is a 
member for. This should be the same as an individual, 1-year from 

If you have questions about your member status, please reach out to our 
treasurer, Karl Boekelheide 
(http://www.oeva.org/contact/newcontact.shtml?treasurer), and he'll make 
sure you're current.
