commitment on the part of the Chapter to promote membership in the OIDF. One
further idea (that obviously would need board discussion) is the idea of a reciprocal
discount, i.e., all Chapter members would receive an X% discount on their OIDF
membership, and vice versa.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

into account all the specificities we are well aware of in a world that is
sharing OIDF&#8217;s interests. The goal is to make the policies as beneficial
