2024 Annual Chapter Fee - Online Payment Glitches!

This message is for CORSA chapter officers,  It's January 30th as I write this - a few days after we sent out chapter fee letters to chapter officers.  Since then, a couple of things have come to our attention.

1.  The last paragraph talks about the option of paying the fee online, but the instruction for doing it is incorrect.  It should say, Go to, log-in and, using the navigation menu, go to “CORSA Welcomes You”, then “Chapters” and finally “Annual Chapter Filing Fee”.

2.  We've been notified that one or more of the online payment options doesn't work.  We will ask our I/T consultant to find out why and fix it.  In the meantime, please send a paper check instead.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.  Allan Lacki
