Yup, dues are going up.
I have mixed feelings on it. Dues haven't been increased in eons, whereas inflation has hit everything else, so in a sense it is past time for a dues increase.
But at the same time I find the timing disturbing. The JA has caused membership loss, then there is the whole "field of dreams" thing which part of me still thinks is more than anything a ploy to distract members from the JA fiasco (and even if it's not is this economy really the time to be thinking about it??), and overall a lot of discontent amongst many members in the organization as a whole. When morale is low and people everywhere are already financially strapped due to the economy, it's a poor time to ask people to pay more to belong to the organization. Especially with what constitutes a pretty significant increase.
