If members are allow to pay the membership fee in small portions, this would encourage an increase in membership. It is money that makes the mail run, but let’s us not ignore unity, which build strength. This fee is too high. Many of us would like to give what we have, but to be a member is just too expensive for some of us. Believe it!!

I concur with those comments. Why is the membership fee so high and what are the real benefits of membership? I am really not sure.

If members are allowed to pay the membership fee in small portion, this would encourage new members topping in. It is money that make the mail run, but sometimes it cripples a good thing.
