We have four issues of POMONA a year. Perhaps we should raise the dues to
$18.00 annually and demand that more folk write articles or at least make it
fun. I think there are many folk who can tell a tale. Also what about
raffles etc. I would through 20 bench grafts at the highest bidder.
What say you?

If the deficit is $5000 per year, how much of a dues increase is
necessary to cover the deficit?
1000 members $5 per year
2000 members $2.50 per year
Surely even a $5 increase per year is worthy of consideration.
Another option is to maintain the current fee structure for an
electronic distribution (online or downloaded PDF) and an optional fee
to cover a hard copy and its mailing for those members who prefer not to
receive the POMONA electronically.
