If you are a new member, do all 4 steps,



orientation and picture.

Things that hold up your application,

payments under a different name (if I’m unaware of it),

waiting for a picture or orientation.

When I receive your application I look for all required information. If I’m missing any I need to take time to email and request it. At that time your application goes onto the “complete when information comes in” pile. I will endeavor to complete it as soon as I can.
I hope this helps answer questions and not generate more.
Thank you all for your patience.
