Ric, you are an excellent communicator. I share the views in your letter.

Kudos to our chief!
Agustin Gonzalez Garza commented on the article "Why double the number of AIGA members?"
Just to have an organization providing a unified voice for our industry is worth $295. Having a central institution that brings about local level initiatives where every month there are conferences, events, exhibitions and publications further justify the $295 annual membership fee. Additionally, there are many AIGA resources that help improve our professional practice, such as Communique, Design Business and Ethics, the National website, etc... The extraordinary job that Ric and the National team has done in articulating design value has helped me and thousands of design professionals make a case for design to prospective clients, substantiate fees, and gain a more influential position within the client's organization. This alone, is worth $295. This blog should turn the discussion away from $295 and focus on how each of us can help to make our organization financially sustainable and more influential among the country's business and cultural communities. Students and professionals in all relevant fields should engage in a common effort to empower our professional organization. A unified voice is more effective than chatter.
