Forget the debate about CEU's for the moment. Why is it that professional organizations in major cities as well as material associations do not make siminars or information available at a reasonable price to members outside major metropolitian area's? Why must we pay an average of $150.00 to attend a seminar that offers to explain a code related subject. Why too, must we pay to obtain a commentary that explains what we pay exhorbitantly for obtain in each Code that we purchase? Why must we pay additionally for revisions to the code that correct mistakes in the edition we paid $85.00 for? These questions are rhetorical. If active members with access to the boards of any of the professional organizations are reading this, then you may help the cause by supporting taped, published and Cyber-seminar (Internet seminars via Real Audio or similar). The use of new marketing tools will make more information available to the professional community at much lower prices (more in line with Mini-seminar prices charged by SEAOSC) and will create a greater potential for income to help these organizations survive. What we need is to strap the board of directors for each organization and their committee chairpersons to a chair and run these posts by them on the internet so that we can grab their attention away from those issues that they believe are the only ones affecting the profession. They need to widen their view to preserve their organisation. Maybe we should vote only for board members that are Internet literate enough to bring the arugments away from the "immediate family" and onto the cyber-table where they can hear the voice of the public. Enough, I have to go cut my hair, change from bell-bottoms to a suit and get off this soap box. Amen! Dennis
