I can only say what my own reaction would be , and that is: lacking any other
direction from the membership committee or board of directors, I would assume
that my membership would be extended, or at least I would be told to ante up a
partial years dues. I'll bet we have a significant factor here on why there were
so many drops.
Some sort of policy statement would be appropriate. People tend to fill in
vacuums with answers that best suit THEM...
