Ria, I see you point, though respectfully, I do not 100% agree with it. Maybe it’s a matter of perspective. I would agree that providing a minimal or discounted fee to members for a given award is a great incentive to convince someone to join. And I agree that some will join simply to obtain the awards. But I also understand that there are those who for any of a number of reasons will not wish to join the organization, no matter how many incentives are provided. I simply don’t believe that we should out of hand deny operational awards to those who decline to join. That they have to pay “full freight” and not get any discounts goes hand-in-hand with their declination. That is their choice. If anything, making the opportunity to achieve the award available, even at the higher cost, shows the organization to be the representative of all that it has always claimed to be. I’m not at this time going to go into many paragraphs of explanation that most won’t want to read, but if you ever want to hear my thoughts on the matter directly, just let me know.
