All registration forms, other than the European, should be requested from and returned to Ed Salome. All Registration forms for Europe should be requested from and returned to Leon Pauwels. Mr. Pauwels will review all forms to determine that they are filled out correctly and completely. Once this is done he will send them to Ed Salome, who will issue the certificates and enter the data into the computer. This should speed up the process and eliminate the delays caused by mailing the forms to the states.
