Based on an email I just received, where they told me essentially that DOT walked in and declared what the solution would be, it certainly appears they knew. If so, then the renewal at old rate...

It was an email from me to the District III VP. I let him know this was the second request, the first made back around 2006, where nothing came of it. His response, in which he copied Dave M, he said...

Yeah, I get concerned when organizations won't even put a reasonable proposal to a vote. To me it was a powerful indicator that they don't want to go on record saying no to active duty military. I...

I'm asking to avoid either you or your compadre bacon coming back later and say I didn't get an answer because I asked the wrong person, used the wrong method, etc.

So, go on record and tell me...

Transparency does not equal expense. Much of the information they should be collecting already. Are you trying to say they don't know their demographics? Or how they're changing over time? Are you...

I'll be interested if we ever find out how many of the memberships sold this way result in a renewal in a year? Same as I'd be interested in how many of the free youth memberships turn into paid...

I don't hate the AMA. In fact, I'll even concede they're a bunch of good guys that are trying their best. But, I think they've made bad decisions and have been consistently outclassed in this effort.

Wow. That sounds like an approach a lawyer would take to prove receipt. Pretty disappointing that a member has to go to that length just to get the organization to provide the courtesy of a response....

So, in the off chance I decide to write an article for the magazine, what is your accepted method for submitting it so that if they don't publish it, it's nothing I've done?

I do think that the paid AMA membership numbers will decay over time, but I think it's more a death by a thousand cuts than any single issue. Price of entry, aging demographic, loss of fields,...

It'll be interesting to see what happens to memberships...if you own your own home and don't fly at an AMA field, no compelling reason to be a member -- unless you like paying $75 for a magazine.
