The dated renewal sticker will be mailed out along with the 2020 gate key IF you had a membership in 2019 AND were issued a 2019 gate key.

If you return your 2019 gate key by mail, tape it to a small piece of cardboard or paper so that it does not become loose and escape from the envelope during its travel through the postal service. Otherwise, just hang onto it for the time being.
