Collector's Edition News & Updates
Collector's Edition Wait List Updates for 2019
Each year, we invite members of the waiting list to upgrade in waves. Members who are on the waiting list for 2019 should have received notice of whether they were upgraded or whether they remain on the waiting list. Depending on the response that we get, we may be able to invite a few more waiting list members. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 805.237.1231 x236.
