COVID-19: As is true with most small organizations around the world, The Morse Society has been impacted by the Coronovirus Pandemic. Our volunteer corps is stretched thin, as most of our volunteers work for companies that provide essential services. One of our volunteers works in a hospital. If you send a query and it takes us a while to respond, please be patient. We are trying to get through this in one piece.
- We are a small society that is 100% dependent on a handful of unpaid volunteers, most of whom work full-time. While we do our best to keep up, there may be a delay when a key volunteer is on vacation or focused on a work deadline. Thank you in advance for your patience.
- Membership runs from Jan 1 to Dec 31. If you join on or after Oct 1, your membership will be extended through the next year.
- If you join online, PayPal will immediately charge your account but your membership is not valid until a society volunteer enters the information into our member database. PLEASE BE PATIENT.
- As soon as your information is entered into our system, you will receive a confirmation email with your log-in information.
- Please provide your known Morse/Morss/Moss line information when you join. Please download the form here and email the completed document to our Secretary.
