Annual Membership Re-sign Event

As you know, Mike Delesdernier, along with the support of Larry Dale, Sandy Denapolis-Bosarge, Mark Jacobs and Pat Tovrea took steps last year to “Bust the Union” by revoking all payroll deductions for JFT members’ dues.  These 5 board members made it a requirement for all members to sign a new form each year to continue their membership.
