Default Life Membership Questions?

When one joins as a life member, what does it allow/include? Are past issues of the Parker Pages available in digital format, etc?
Thanks!
Jim

No Jim, they are not.

A life membership allows one to vote for the PGCA Directors, your representatives in the decision-making process of this organization.

And a life member can run for position on the BOD.

Economically speaking, it gives one a PGCA membership for as long as he lives for the equivalent of 12.5 years of annual fees, at the current annual member rate.

And you can have it printed above your avatar on your Forum name block and everyone will know how hip you are.
Beware- there is a limit to how many life members we can have so don't delay.

I took out a 12 year term life insurance policy. I've had it for 12 years. I should be entitled to demand that the company change its designation to whole life and consider it paid up. Right?

No, sorry it doesn't work that way. You basically rented the policy for 12 years.

Rich- you should expect no special considerations for your 12.5 years of annual PGCA membership!
