I'm wary of posting on this topic because I don't want to launch into a long STC discussion. But according to our recent chapter poll, only 21% of our members are planning to renew their STC membership.
Forty six people participated in the poll (we have 77 chapter members). You can read their list of reasons for not renewing in the full survey report.
I'm wondering -- if our chapter is a microcosm for the whole, at what point will the STC have to dissolve or restructure itself? And if it does, what will the restructuring look like?
