RAC Bulletin 2012-005E – Outstanding ARES ID cards
I am happy to advise that all outstanding ARES ID Cards are now "in the mail". Please accept my thanks for your patience. This has been a frustrating time that started with an absent supplier, then a sick supplier, then on to sourcing a new supplier at a reasonable cost, to eventually purchasing our own machine so I now do the cards in house here at my home office. Future turn around time will be days instead of weeks.
The other advantage we now have is the ability to print custom cards. As a benefit to affiliated Clubs and ARES Groups we can now offer printing in house of ID cards that are unique to your group, at the same cost ($4.00) as the ARES cards. Not only is this a benefit to you our members, but it will assist in the cost recovery time of our printer. Again, many thanks for your patience!
Later today I will be e-mailing some of you who did not send a picture with your card application. If you get this e-mail just send me a picture and I'll send your card out post haste.
