Please note, there is no guarantee that the unit you paid with will be the unit the funds are taken from. The Registrar will do what she can to process this the intended way but units that have not submitted their recharter or have problems will not be processed until they are in good order. We will not hold up another unit’s recharter so the multiple may not be processed first in the paid position. Members will receive a registration card from their primary (paid) registration only.
