As such, the VRA needs to know who its operators are, and to this end WICEN recently contacted members requesting their information for the VRA database, and a photograph for a VRA ID card. Members who have not yet received a VRA ID need to respond to Steven Heimann's email of March 13 entitled "[Wicen Announce] VRA member database and ID cards".
