Have yall lost a wheel and gone in the ditch?
« on: March 06, 2013, 06:34:31 pm »
Posted to the SFWDA 2013 1/4ly meeting minutes:
Code: [Select]
Should we remain a part of UFWDA?
SFWDA mailed United 4WDA a check for 2012 dues,
United never returned correspondence
with us so we placed a stop pay on the
check in December. We have still not heard from them.

Newsletter is here:  http://www.sfwda.org/pdf/2013LeadershipMeeting.pdf

What the hell, guys?

I hate to ask the obvious, but did anyone from SFWDA contact Treasurer or Membership Director to verify that the check was actually received?

I have to admit that this is the first time I've heard anything about it and I get copies of all the correspondence!

Members are WAY too important to let slide like that.  There's no way UFWDA would not cash, nor correspond, with someone sending in some dues.  We'd LOVE to have SFWDA on board; there MUST be some shenanigans going on over at the post office.

Hi Doc, thanks for raising this and I hope that it can be quickly resolved, because we do value Southern and guys like you! I don't recall seeing advice that we received that check but I've asked Bob our treasurer to review the records.  Has your association any record of the check being cashed?

By the way, I'm looking for material for an edition of Voice due at the end March, anything been happening around your way?

Kind regards

I would like to Thank those that brought this to my attention.

I can state with absolute certainty United did not receive the Check from Southern Four Wheel Drive Association as indicated in the post above and discussed in the Leadership Meeting held February 2, 2013.  I can only ascertain the check was sent to an old address that no longer forwards mail.  United Four Wheel Drive Associations has held our present address since April 2011, which is:
UFWDA
P.O. Box 316
Swartz Creek, Michigan 48473
Our address is published monthly in the eNews.

Our QuickBooks Account reflects the last payment received from Southern Four Wheel Drive Association was Check Number 6112, Dated 08/13/2008 in the amount of $3.950.  (This posting to the account was prior to my assuming the role of treasurer.)

I am willing to do whatever I possibly can do to rectify the sense of rejection.  If you want me present at a Board or Membership Meeting to answer questions, I will do my level best to accomondate Southern Four Wheel Drive Association and its Members.
