Question --- I just got my annual letter from IMBA telling me its time to renew my membership. I know its only $50 for the basic, and I've got plenty t-shirts, etc...but I'm wondering whats in this thing for BUMP for me to continue to be an IMBA member. I don't know how accurate this is, but I've heard that BUMP doesn't receive any funds from IMBA's membership dues...is there clarification on that?
Is it possible to be a member of BUMP and have all my membership dues go locally and then let BUMP pay IMBA?
If anything, I was quite disheartened by the latest IMBA newsletter where they have a big article about all the great events they're been having across the United State to celebrate their 25th anniversary. There were 25 of these, 7-8 of them were in Colorado and most were out west which is to be expected, but none of them were in the southeast -- no GA, AL, TN, SC, FL, MS, LA, AR, TX, KY...I don't even think they had one in NC.
