Discount Magazine Subscriptions
When will 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.
If you subscribe at RCA Meeting in: Month (e.g. January)
You will receive your first issue in: Month + 2 (e.g. March)
And you will receive the issue for: Month + 4 (e.g. May)
It takes two months to renew your subscription:
If your subscription expires with this issue: Month (e.g. January)
You must renew by this RCA meeting: Month - 3 (e.g. October)
So that two months later in: Month - 1 (e.g. December)
You will receive the Issue for: Month + 1 (e.g. February)
In between meetings:
I still accept renewals and new subscriptions, but do not process them until the next meeting.
