a member of the KCBS Research and Development Committee a coupla years back, and I believe the concept stemmed from there; trying to bring about more member benefits
. As a matter of fact, the committee specifically discussed NEBS and its policy.
There are events in the NorthEast that give NEBS members a discounted entry fee
. It has ALWAYS been considered one of the 'benefits' of being a NEBS member.
This 'new concept', had it been brought forward in a different light, as a BENEFIT (instead of 'non-members pay more and the organizer gets to do the work')... I think it may have been received much better.
