Effective immediately: Any currently active AMPS Member who recruits a new member will receive a four month extension to their membership, which equates to two issues of Boresight Magazine. A new member is defined as someone who has never been a member of AMPS or someone whose AMPS membership lapsed at least 3 years prior to renewing (subject to verification by the Membership Coordinator). In order to receive this benefit the new/joining member must enter the name of the person who recruited/referred them in the “Instructions to Merchant” section for all PayPal transactions or simply add a note in the payment envelope for all snail mail (check/MO)payments.
