Membership Renewal Reminder

Dear All,

If you have already renewed your membership, you can ignore this message. If you have not yet done so, I wanted to remind you to do so prior to March 31, 2013.

Under the new bylaws, FBF will be electing its new Board of Directors in April 2013. The Board is now expanding to nine members with 8 officer positions including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Project Chair, Membership Chair, Technology Chair and Communications Chair. With nine Board members, there’s a wide range of opportunities calling out for your innovation and activism.  The only catch is that your membership must be current in order to vote and/or to serve on the board.  So please be sure that your membership is renewed between now and March 31, 2013!!


For only $15 a year (or the equivalent of 2 drinks at Starbucks) you will receive our quarterly newsletter, the Burkina Connection.  For an additional $35 a year you can also become a member of the  National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).  Please fill out the below  membership coupon and indicate clearly which organization you would like to join. If you would like to pay your dues electronically, please visit our website and click on the ‘Join Us’ tab on the left side of our homepage.


Please print and  fill out the coupon below, attach check (payable to FBF) and mail so it is received by not later than March 31, 2013 at the following address.  Any membership dues received after Nov. 2012 will be attributed to 2013.
