In light of COVID-19 NY Pause mandates that non-essential in-person gatherings are postponed and the need to preplan the 2020 Annual Membership Meeting for CDR and RCIL, this event will be held via mail. At the end of May, members will receive the annual meeting notice, membership renewal forms and a ballot to return with their vote(s).

The well-being of everyone is critical and following best practices will help to keep us safe. While there is discussion of some restrictions being lifted in a few areas after May 15, we must organize now to meet obligations to our members. An in-person meeting is not likely to be the safest format, if allowed at all.

CDR & RCIL are membership based organizations. Members have a strong interest and voice in the future of the organizations, and not only in tangible benefits. Members have specific rights to participate in elections for Directors and Officers. The future direction of the organization is dependent on the board directors, who are elected by members.

Not a member? Join today! Make your vote count in the 2020 election for directors and officers. Remit the membership form [ ] and payment to Linda Taylor, CDR, 497 State St, Rochester, NY 14608. You will be mailed the annual meeting notice and documents needed to vote.

CDR & RCIL have reciprocal membership benefits. If you are a member of either organization, you are a member of both!

Members, keep an eye on your mailbox for the annual meeting notice. Results will be posted on the CDR website, under the NEWS tab the week of June 22nd.

Remember, YOUR VOTE COUNTS. Questions or concerns? Contact Linda Taylor at or at 585-546-7510.
