Reasonable membership dues, for either individuals or libraries, are supported here at our library, and I'm sure my director would give it positive consideration. I have my ALA membership paperwork tacked to the board in front of me, and I see we're paying $106 yearly for ALA ($40) + LITA ($60) for me, and I've only ever been to one LITA conference. I suspect some many tech people aren't high enough in the food chain to make it to ALA conferences. Just some of my random pre-2 Dec comments.

The same comment also holds true for whatever organization might come from the nascent "Koha-HLT" effort.

Subject: [Koha]  KUDOS online Discussion

KUDOS - Koha Users and Developers of Open Source - is a group of individuals
that are interested in promoting how we use of Koha in the United States. 
John Brice of Crawford County has registered it as a legal entity in the
Common Wealth of PA, and is preparing paperwork to set up a 501(c3) status
in order to handle dues to cover organization expenses.

Several of us would like to have a virtual meeting on Dec 2, at 2 pm central
time using a java chat service available from Plano ISD.

available.  I will also post the link on the listserv Koha-Discuss and
