I know there were some issues in getting the first issue of the Voice out under the new publisihing arrangement.
The last thing I remember seeing was that it would likely be mailed out about Feb 21.
I still haven't received mine and can't seem to locate anyone who has. Has it been delayed further or should those of us who have not received it yet work from the presumption that there is something specifically involving our memberships/subscriptions which needs to be resolved?

Apparently it is in the mail.
A member from IFWDA just received his.
I'm waiting.

On 3/06/07 the UFWDA mail house delivered the Voice to the U. S. Post Office for bulk mail delivery. 

As Doug indicated, people in Indiana, as well as in Wisconsin and locations in the Colorado tri-state area have been receiving their Voices since Saturday.  Deliveries within the contintental U.S. should be complete over the next few days. 

If you have not received your Voice by Monday, March 26, please contact our office to report it.  We can verify instantaneously your membership status, address and membership number.  The e-mail for the office is info@ufwda.org or via telephone at 1-800-448-3932 (44-UFWDA). 

The delay we experienced in shipping this edition of the Voice was an internal UFWDA delay and was unique to this edition surrounding some of our advertising commitments.  The delay will not occur with the 2nd edition of the Voice, slated to be received in your mail box the 3rd week of May.   

I'd like to take this opportunity to indicate our pleasure with our new publication design and layout contractor, Publication Designs, and our partners Citizen Printing (printer) and United Mailing (mail house).  They have all performed professionally and honored their on-time commitments to UFWDA. 

I hope you enjoy your new Voice very soon.

Jay,
We apologize that you have not received the Voice in the Past.  Please verify with your association that your name has been sent in on their roster.  If it has, then Please contact Kathleen, our Office Manager, to verify that your address is correct in our system.  Soon, you will be able to verify this information on-line yourself.

Since I raised the issue, I wanted to provide an update.
I called Kathleen yesterday who confirmed that I was on the list to receive mine and some of the Mid Atlantic folks received their issue of to the Voice so it's "in the mail".

Perhaps there is an address issue.  Jay could you call Kathleen and make sure she has the correct address?

I would like to separate two distinct issues regarding Voice delivery.

1 - Never or rarely received

2 - Late in receiving.

The current edition of the Voice was delivered to the USPS about Mar 6.  I received mine about a week ago.  Others report receiving theirs this week.  Others have still not seen their copy. 

As Shawn pointed out, part of that may be due to address issues. 

We (UFWDA Board of Directors) recognize that communication with members is important.  The Voice is our direct link.  The "risk" is an incorrect address in our database.  We are striving to correct that by providing the ability for individual members to update their address as necessary through www.ufwda.org

If you have a question about your address, Kathleen can provide address verification.  Or, check the UFWDA website under the menu "Member Services" to verify your address.

As we move forward, the BOD is committed to ensuring prompt communication with members.  The "on-line" database of addresses is one step.  It does require that we have current (and correct) address information for members. 

If you have a question about your membership, please use one of the options available: post it to the forums, use the website member services, or direct email to a BOD member.

Is it possible to make a PDF verson for those that would prefer to receive it that way?
This would also decrease the cost of mailing these to so many people.
I know some people do not have computers and would not want it this way.
You could use the database of members, and have a check box for mail delivery of the voice.  Then the database would only print a mailing label for those that needed a paper copy of the voice.
All the others would get a electronic version.

Just an idea.

I fall under the "1".    I have never seent his publication in any shape or form.
