PCakes: So what is the benefit of membership? And where does the 'vote' come in?
I see the society says on the link you provided to "have a say in the future of the society'
Does this mean that members have input? So you are saying that by joining the society it may give members more sway in how they distribute funds?
It's a great idea in theory, but how would we know this is the case?
I really love the presentation idea....oh that's good. If everyone mailed and petitioned the society to spit out the million or so dollars for ccsvi research do you think they would listen?
To be truthful, I'm skeptical to become an official member because I wouldn't want them to spend the extra money communicating with me or sending me mail/books/brochures because that would take away from research funds. Isn't that how it seems to work!
I also love the vascular organization support idea.....which organizations would fall under this category?
So many great minds in one place.....wish our community ran the society, we'd all be fixed up by now
