I think the KCBS should push the other benefits of proper membership or advertise more loudly how membership bucks are being used to the members benefit whether they are cooks, judges, or both. That may attract more renewals and new memberships
i dont think taking away something like judging from people who were previously able to judge for free is the answer. I look at them more as volunteers anyway
