Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the great post and, of course, thanks to Holly for sharing it with the BizSugar community. I have to say it's the first time I've heard it put quite this way before, but, yes, I think everyone's had those experiences with membership organizations that take a lot of time and return very little. The key, I think, is to look at things in a very utilitarian way. Think of organizations from the standpoint of ROI. What are you getting from your membership? It's the way to approach just about everything in your business and a good way to be sure you're not simply going through the motions.
