Being a member of an organization requires ones active participation to insure its success. Membership also means having a voice in making difficult decisions regarding its future. Sometimes it means having to change radically what the organization does or in some cases ending it all together. I am going to a meeting today where such decisions will be made. 

Membership has its privileges but also its responsibilities and obligations. If you are going to join something you must be prepared to support it even if it means ending it.
