Thanks for posting this, Ted. Sometimes those new to the discussion board don't understand the difference in being a member of the board and being a member of the club.

When did this become a requirement? My understanding is, in order to receive a local club ornament you must be a member of both the KOC and a local club. I have never read anywhere that you have to be a member of the KOC to belong to a local club. Can you please let me know where you saw this? Thanks.

Billiej57,

your check has been received and will be deposited today. There have been delays due to weather and sick kiddos.

Michele: The KOC membership is required by the by-laws of The YuleLoggers Club. But, I also believe that KOC membership is required by Hallmark--they always stress it when the annual roster has to be submitted to them.

So it's a Yuleloggers rule, not a Hallmark rule. This year was the first year they said you needed to be a KOC member in order to receive the local club ornament if you belong to a local club. I've never seen anything from them that states you had to be a KOC member in order to belong to a local club. Would they like everyone to be, I'm sure, but it's never been a rule.

I think Hallmark has said it before...they have just never tried to enforce it before.

Who knows if they will this year or not....

Good morning. Does the Club have a sponsor store?
Posted by: 88eggs

Re: 2019 YuleLog Club Membership Information - 06/19/19 12:13 PM

Yes, our sponsor store is Town Crier Gifts in Tennessee. See her special offer for Hallmark ornaments this year. It is in the Collectors Club post in the club forum.

Re: 2019 YuleLog Club Membership Information - 06/26/19 01:58 AM

One thing I do, is when I order all of my ornaments from Town Crier I ask them to add my membership ornament if they have them to save the club postage.

Re: 2019 YuleLog Club Membership Information - 07/19/19 07:24 PM

Thanks Susan! Yes, Erika answered a PM. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong as I was on the yuleloggers club website & tried to follow all directions. Anyway, I will submit via mail & go that route. No, I will not be going to the KC event. I'm sure it will be a blast! I so enjoyed the AOT (artists on tour) events we had in Dallas & Houston some years back. Thanks again for your help! I really appreciate it. Looking forward to joining the club.

Re: 2019 YuleLog Club Membership Information - 08/04/19 12:56 PM

Erica & Ted,
I sent my check in a couple weeks ago. How will I know when I've been recorded as club member? Also, I seemed to remember availability of miniature club ornaments for the cost of postage. Please advise. Thank you

Re: 2019 YuleLog Club Membership Information - 08/04/19 03:48 PM

Pam: I checked with Erika. She has not received your check. Be aware that my sister's dues payment check took one month to arrive at Erika's. If she receives it, I will let you know.

Yes, back miniature club ornaments are available for postage, but we have to get your membership set up first.

Pam,

I was out of town and now I'm back. I confirmed with Ted earlier this morning that the check was received. However, he will be traveling to KOC, so I'm not sure if he was able to process your membership or not. Sorry for the delay

The Yuleloggers Club website was hacked a while back. Bill has worked on it on and off but I think the current plan is to just abandon it. So, it wasn't you, it was us. As Hallmark is fond of saying. grin grin

Back in the day (early 90's) when we formed the Seattle Collector's club, in order to be acknowledged by Hallmark we had to fill out paperwork that required it be agreed in the bylaws that each member would be a current KOC member and attend so many meetings a year. Then to get the Local Club ornaments we had to submit the roster to Hallmark with each members attendance and they would send us the number of Local Club gifts per.
Not sure if it is the same these decades later but I would not assume or see any reason why Hallmark would of changed that stipulation.

I'm a charter member of one of the oldest local clubs around. I don't remember EVER having to submit a roster to Hallmark that included information on how many times each member attended meetings during the year. I know that the rosters have asked for the KOC number for each member since KOC pays for the local club ornaments. At one time there was a cap of 100 ornaments per local club, which was a challenge for clubs as large as YuleLoggers and COOL which both had more than 100 members for many years.

Your local club, like YuleLoggers and COOL, may require all of your members to be KOC members. My physical local club, in all of its 32 years, has never had this requirement. There have been times that Hallmark has only provided enough gifts (local club ornaments or pins) based on the number of KOC members, but that hasn't always been a rule. I assume Hallmark did this as a way to control their costs and also to deal with the fact that they may not be able to predict how many items they would need to provide one per member name provided on the roster. Clubs come and go, and memberships grow and decrease yearly, something that can't be predicted.
