The WHC creates and distributes six printed newsletters and e-newsletters per year entitled the CounciLetter for WHC members.  As the cost of printing a newsletter has continued to rise, the WHC has decided to continue to offer the CounciLetter free of charge as an e-newsletter that will be e-mailed to members every other month.  However, if you would like to continue to receive a printed-hardcopy CounciLetter mailed to your physical address, you will still be able to do so for a nominal fee of $20.00 per membership year to assist in defraying costs. This choice has been added to all of the membership applications.
