I have been a member of AARP for some time, taking advantage of a few of their "benefits."However, I am now deciding whether to continue my membership.As a member, I have access to the top eschelon of the organization and have used the access to voice my objection to their many political stands with which I disagree.Now, however, it seems that a deaf ear has been turned to those who don't get in lock-step with their agenda.They have been losing members in droves, and have decided not to care.Methinks me association with them is short lived.I will make my card look like yours.
It's an easy choice for me, Joe, I have only been a member since May and have not used my membership for anything yet. All I'm losing is my membership fee. I can see how the same choice would be tough for you. I have a feeling if I were in your place I would be researching my other options first to see if I actually could take a stand against them. I have to question myself - if I was retired and using my membership actively - would I be able to make that choice? I hope so, but I honestly don't know.
I heard if you send your AARP card to ASA, they'll give you a discount on a membership.
Well now there's a thought!
