Countdown (RRG June 1st)

It was my understanding that existing site insurance was good through May 31, 2016 with the extension that USHPA had gotten while the RRG was being funded/setup and that supposedly new insurance through RRG would be in place starting June 1. Does anyone know the status of RRG site insurance?

We're on track for insurance to continue under the RRG beginning June 1. Chapters need to get their applications in ASAP because there's a lot of them to process. Chapter officers should already have the renewal package. If you have questions or want to know if a chapter filing has been received, let me know (PM) and I'll find out.

Seems a few last minute glitches as the last minute paperwork rush overwhelmed the bureaucracy:
