collected will fund continued maintenance and yearly fees of our message

be used for administrative overhead such as postage, printing, etc. A monthly
accounting will be available online, so members will be able to see, at

will continue to be available FREE to any person touched by AMC. Convention
will also remain Free and open to all.
