new AMPS member will receive a four-month extension

AMPS Boresight magazine. A new member is defined
as someone who has never been an AMPS member
or someone whose AMPS membership lapsed at least
three 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
All payments must be in U.S. funds, by check or moneyorder.
You can also pay for your membership using a credit card through
PayPal. All foreign payments must be made by bank-draft
or money-order drawn on a U.S. bank. Membership
begins with the first issue after the membership
application is received.
