Default RE: Why join the AMA?

I get a little weary of the "What will the AMA do for me?" song and dance. Without the AMA and the people who founded it and made it possible for us to enjoy our toys, there might not be any modeling. We are talking 75 years of work by thousands of people, most of it done FOR FREE so we could have some rules, insurance, representation, radio frequencies, and places to fly.

The better question is "What can I do for AMA and modeling?" The AMA is THE legal, public relations, and legislative face of modeling. Until something else comes along, the AMA is it. We all owe model aviation our support and participation.
