We now have a forum for Territorial Congress Members to discuss matters that are before the Congress. Registration to this forum is restricted to members of the Territorial Congress. The forum is located at:

Guests who are not members of Congress are welcome, and indeed encouraged, to browse the topics. However, guests to the forum are not able to post on the forum.


Every membership now runs from 1 January, to 31 December, and all expire at the same time now. So, the Executive Committee has voted to switch to new membership cards which will carry no expiration date from this point forward. This is a move to save our organization money. After you receive your new card in 2013, cards will not be issued each year. We will be happy to replace lost or destroyed cards by request only. Look for your new cards soon!
