This article reports on the increase in membership dues for the Speech Association of America (SAA). On July 1, 1967, the dues increase approved by the Legislative Assembly in December 1966 went into effect. The last dues increase was made in 1963. The effect of these increases may be reflected in the comparative membership figures of SAA. Membership in the SAA has continued to show a steady gain for the past five years. In December 1964, total membership was 4,778. In December 1965, SAA members were 5,604. While in 1966 SAA membership increased to 6,710 and 6,822 in 1967. As of December 1968, total SAA members were 6,952. The dues increase instituted eighteen months ago, did have an effect on the sustaining membership of SAA. Sustaining memberships have been increasing during the last six months. The number of persons holding sustaining life memberships has reached 35. Institutions holding memberships have increased from 34 in 1966 to 116 in 1968. Although the recent increase in dues has improved the financial circumstances of the association, it should be noted that the organization is by no means immune to the rapidly increasing costs in the economy. Like other segments of the educational enteprise, SAA is obliged to give constant attention both to operating efficiencies and to the development of additional sources of revenue.
