Dear Collector,                                                                                              Calendar YR 2002

            We invite you to join the FMAC, which is a privately owned network of collectors, dealers, historians and preservationists of all forms of farm machinery advertising and memorabilia with interests spanning all manufacturers and time periods. David Schnakenberg and Larry Cornelius co-founded the FMAC in December 1994 with 24 interested collectors as charter members. As of December 31, 2001, the FMAC had 276 members from 37 states, Canada, England, and The Netherlands. We encourage our members to share information about their collections and the advertising history of the farm implement business.

            The FMAC Newsletter was first published in June 1995 and has been published quarterly since 1998. We urge our members to write and submit articles pertaining to their collecting interests for use in the FMAC Newsletter. Classified advertisements and other newsworthy items about our hobby are also welcomed at no charge to FMAC members. Please limit your ads to 35 words plus your name, address, and phone number. Each issue will provide a list of upcoming collector shows that will offer the opportunity for our members to get acquainted and do some buying, selling and trading.

            We ask that each FMAC applicant complete the New Member Personal Information and Interests Form. The information you provide will be used to prepare the categorized Annual FMAC Membership Directory which is categorized by the collecting interests of the members. The Directory is published annually and provided only to current and new members. The list of Areas of Interests may be used as a guide in completing the form.

            Membership dues for 2002 are $20 for U.S. and Canada members ($30 for overseas addresses), which includes a subscription for the March, June, September and December 2002 FMAC Newsletters and the 2002 Membership Directory. All new members who join before March 25, 2002 will also receive a complimentary copy of the December 2001 Newsletter!

            You also have the option to subscribe to the FMAC Newsletter without joining the FMAC but you will not be listed in nor will you receive the Membership Directory. A subscription for the four 2002 issues is $15 ($20 overseas). Back issues may be ordered at $5 each.
