My online account has remained active. Curious whether new brass bell was sent to me.
The short answer is your membership has not expired yet.
The old membership system was based on receiving 4 issues of the Bell, not the Gregorian calendar or anything recognizable as a calendar of sorts. Since the club got behind on Bell mailings, you are still owed two more issues if I am counting correctly (winter and spring) before you need to renew. I understand we are converting to a calendar based membership for renewals but I don't know how the exact mechanics will work. I think the plan is to catch up on the Bells so that it doesn't matter either way.
