I object to this. I am a member of Birds Australia, Bird Observers, ACF,
Greenpeace, WWF, WA Naturalists Club, Kimberley Society, Western Banders,
AWSG, SOSSA, etc. The only group that I am ACTIVE in is Birds Australia.
Would you rather that I resign from all the other groups? Surely my
membership and donations are better than no support at all?
So don't get angry with members who do nothing. It is better that they are
a member than not at all. Accept these people for the limited support they
do give, and seek other new members. If you push these inactive members
harder then they will simply not renew their membership.
