Discount Magazine Subscriptions for Rose City Astronomers

When does my magazine show up?
Note that it takes them few weeks to update their records, and then the magazines ship 5-6 weeks early

On the General Meeting nights:

I collect any magazine renewals and new subscriptions (cash or checks, no credit cards).

During the week after the meeting:

I check all the applications against the current membership list.
I prepare letters to the magazine companies with the subscription information.
I deposit the checks into the RCA Club bank account.
I mail an RCA check to the magazine companies.

It takes two months before you will get your new subscription because:

It takes a week to process the info and get the check and info to the publisher's outsourced registration office.
It takes them a week or so to process the information.
They then print up the labels 2-3 weeks in advance of the mailing
They mail out the magazine about 5-6 weeks in advance of the month listed on the cover
