The email about membership standards have been interesting and thought provoking. I have mixed feelings about requiring points or submissions of work.
But from a 12/13/07 posting that summarized some of the off-list email-
The core membership category for those engaged in professional genealogical activities.
An Associate Membership for "newbies" exploring possibilities, those who join for a social network or the free education from the list, or because they wish to support professionalism in genealogy, etc.
A third for "Related Services" - perhaps those whose sole/major businesses are as travel planners, book publishers, printers, etc.
However, we already use the term "associate" to describe someone affiliated with another full membership.
And on continuing education credits - not all are associated with colleges or universities. Attorneys in Texas have a required number of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses each year - but most are not college or university affiliated. In a previous life I attended continuing education classes for social workers, some of which were taught by social workers. Trevia's descriptions are right on.
