CONGRATULATIONS!!! on a great opening meet at Century Downs. Now that the meet is officially over, I have issued and sent out all meet end cheques. You should be seeing them in your mailboxes by next week. Thanks for a great meet.
On December 31st, your 2015 ASHA memberships will expire. The new 2016 applications are being sent to you via surface mail. If you are a current ASHA member please remit the form you receive in the mail with the appropriate payment. If you have a change of beneficiary, method of contact, change of address, or anything else please make these changes on the form before returning it to the office. We are not asking for Social Insurance Numbers from the vast majority of you as it is on file and protected. However, if you notice it is blank on your form, then we do not have it in the office. For those not familiar with the membership application form, it is important to fill these forms completely because of the life insurance policy benefit provided.
