I happen to be member #563. There are currently 311 members wordwide. I am 1 of only 4 currently in the state of Ohio with only 2 of the others operating an actual storefront business. this is a big deal for me, but is a bigger deal for you. Because by becoming a member I have promised to practice under a strict code of ethics. You may review them on their website.
