While it’s definitely understandable the need for fees to support the growth of the organization, I encourage you to keep in mind that not all of us have an institution affiliation and are individual volunteers, so hopefully a reasonable tiered schedule will be considered that keeps costs manageable for individuals. Thanks for all you do!
Donna: I agree with your assessment. While it is indeed understandable the need for organizations to have operational budgets and fees, as Greg points out, ‘There is no free lunch’–(anywhere), it would be nice if CSA could bear in mind, in addition to your points, that many in the CS world are doing citizen science on their own time and receiving no compensation for it and some of us were ‘early adopters,’ as it were with, CSA and have been supporting it, in spirit, if not financially, from its inception, including presenting at the first CSA conference in San Jose. Thanks, CSA, for your consideration.
