Our email list is created and populated based on records found in Troopmaster. So there is a possibility that you may not be receiving email updates because a record wasn't created for you when we import[ed] from Troopmaster. We've also noticed there are people in Troopmaster that don't have an email address. So, for those members that are currently NOT receiving troop emails this is for you!
