New rank requirements become effective on January 1st, 2016. More updates will be added to this page over the next few weeks. At the moment, we have three important files available for download:
- Comparison of new and existing requirements
- Frequently Asked Questions about the new requirements
- Transitioning to the new requirements
I also recommend the following links...if you have questions, information, ideas, suggestions that are not covered here, please e-mail the Webmaster, Harry Bakken.
