PLEASE join! I'll do my best with compiling Newletters which will enhance
what's on Aroid L. I received a range of past information and the long and
of the IAS is mind-boggling. With the daily increasing needs of the Planet
especially in tropic wilds, the "liveliest" and most challenging needs
support. The "Scientists" who give the highest credibility to the IAS are
extremely keen that their interests should be the cares and loves of as many
others world-wide as possible. Understandably they use Aroideana as an
efficient "Home" to publish their dedicated research. Aroideana alone cost
$30 to us non-Yanks. But with the insight you get on actually becoming a
Member, the whole picture of "Who's who", what's what, and why's why opens,
and WE can ensure that the Newsletter channels enhance this greatly for the
benefit of all Members. It is fairly young but old enough to have great
with us and know about it before it all happens. Please? I think we should
have an newspaper based on much greater interaction flowering at least one a
month. It is much easier to discover and share as a Member than as a
Non-Member alone. The folks REALLY ARE GREAT! And I am a Life-time Billy
the Kid! Please join! We need everybody who really
cares! And can you write something brilliant please for the JULY
Newsletter? We wait to welcome you and please all the others who are
wavering thinking Aroid L is "it" and enjoying the interplay may feel thats
"it". The pack you get is comprehensive and tells you things you need to
know as an Aroider.
All the very best

| Out of interest what ARE the benefits of being a member. The site lists
| the benefits as "the annual, AROIDEANA, quarterly newsletters, and other
| What ARE these other benefits? Is it written anywhere? I just had a

| to something like $70 a year, which means I'd like to know exactly what
| get for joining. I currently partake of the Aroid-L (which I think is
| wonderful, but I don't need to be a member to use that) but what else of
| benefit to international members. Many of the Horticultural societies are
| geared to their country of origin and have less use for their
| members. That's why I'm asking.
