      for the Elderly, Arahatas, and Students.

      **********************************************************

      Note: The following report was presented to the BOARD
      about SIX WEEKS AFTER Klemp took over as President and
      Trustee of the ECKANKAR Board. My caps are added.

      **********************************************************

      "With due compassion for individuals on a fixed income,
      it can be pointed out that FOR THE PRICE OF A CUP OF
      COFFEE EACH DAY [STARBUCKS?] ONE CAN HAVE A
      MEMBERSHIP IN ECKANKAR.

      RECORD KEEPING for almost ANY POLICY desired by the
      BOARD can be HANDLED AUTOMATICALLY by appropriate
      PROGRAMMING CHANGES in the COMPUTER. Current
      programming works with EIGHT MEMBERSHIP TYPES
      (ANNUAL, LIFE, FAMILY, YOUTH, SUSTAINING, UNDERDEVELOPED
      COUNTRY, FAMILY UNDERDEVELOPED, and COMPLIMENTARY).
      Also there is A COMPLIMENTARY SUSTAINING PROJECT that
      is handled like a DISCOURSE so it ONLY happens ONCE PER
      CHELA.

      Programming changes and accounting changes to handle
      additional membership types can be done in about 3 hours.

      Many TYPES have LETTERS and other ENCLOSURES inserted by
      the mailing department. Currently there are NINE possible
      enclosures, some in THREE languages each, [which languages?]
      these to be selected and enclosed by hand.

      It is recommended that any NEW MEMBERSHIP TYPES be kept
      EXCEEDINGLY SIMPLE so as NOT TO CLOG UP THE WORKS."
