ABSTRACT
This article reports on the plan by the Speech Communication Association (SCA) in the U.S. to increase its membership fee for its life members. At the Anaheim, California convention, the SCA Legislative Council approved a recommendation of its Administrative Committee to raise the fee for an SCA Sustaining Life Membership, effective July 1, 1982, from $1250 to $1500. The Life Member fee was established at $1000 in 1965; it was raised to $1250 in 1974. The purpose of the Life Member program are: to provide the association with endowment income to undertake projects that would not otherwise be possible, and to give members an opportunity to provide the association with an extra measure of support. Discretion on the use of the Life Member endowment income rests with the Legislative Council; to date, it has been used principally in support of the association's awards program. Life Members receive all of the services enjoyed by Sustaining Members, including subscriptions to all three journals, the annual Directory, and free convention registration. The fee for Sustaining Membership is currently $80 per year. Inflation has made Life Memberships at $1250 a bargain. The fee may be paid in a lump sum or in up to five equal annual installments.
