Units, please DO NOT sit on cards that members have paid their dues for!!!  It's not fair to the member who paid their dues months ago and are getting renewal notices in the mail.  You should be sending in membership at the very least twice a month, bigger Units should be turning membership in at least once a week.  Our members are not going to pay their dues if they can't trust that they are going to be sent into Department HDQ in a timely manner!!!
