Let me try to state it more succinctly than I did in
my "Putting the Cart Before the Horse" post this
For those who believe only those who charge clients a
fee should belong to APG, or that there should be
categories of less than full membership for those who
don't take clients, or don't earn X amount, or don't
have a CG/AG:
What it is that APG as an organization is or is not
doing that does not serve your needs?
How exactly am I harming your organization?
Do I, and others like me, actually have that much
power and influence over the workings of the
organization? (If I do, it comes as a great surprise
If I were to switch my "no" I don't take clients to
"yes," and bring in $100 this year, does that really
mean I'm now deserving of full APG membership?
Yes, I agree, it is a problem that there are people
with little to no genealogy-related training,
education, or experience who charge a fee for document
retrieval and "research," but how in the world will
restricting membership in APG solve that problem?
