New benefits are being added all the time. For example, members who own businesses can now get a 5 percent discount on long-distance telephone service through LDDS/Metromedia. A discount for residential service is also available. For more information about this benefit, call LDDS at 1-800-SERVICE.
A new membership directory will also be available soon for members to purchase.
