It's getting late, so I'll try to keep this short.  People join 
various groups for various reasons.  My general experience with most 
plant societies is that they are mostly social societies.  I'm not 
anti-social, but I don't join a plant society for it's social aspects. 
I've belonged to the lily society and the daylily society for over 20 
years and right now the only reason I continue to be a member is that 
I am commerically involved with lilies and daylilies.  And like all 
too many other societies, the lily and daylily society are dominated 
by snobs, elites' and people who are proof that the Peter Principle 
works.  Some of these people are still nice people, but I find they 
often like power, rarely know how to handle power and often are 
arrogant to some degree.  I have no desire to associate with people 
like this - there are just too many other nice people around.  I've 
had too many experiences with people who work their way to the top 
because that is where the power is, however little it may be.  I don't 
know how you can prevent this from happening.  

Personally, I think anyone who has an interest in hostas can get a lot 
more out of being a member of this robin and maybe joining a local 
club then they can from being a member of the national organization.  
I need to answer some of Andrew's questions too.
