>>>consider that most of them have a business model they are trying to push
(ad revenue, membership revenue, partnership revenue, etc.)<<<

WHAT???  You mean they are not just in this for the advancement and
professional development of their members?? <smacking forehead> I really
gotta take these blinders off. Seriously, I didn't really consider that.
Also, agree about HTML Writers Guild- no standards for membership. Actually,
the same standards apply to US as well as to the clients we're evaluating
(see other message about eliminating clients who don't belong to industry
org's)... if we simply BELONG to an organization, especially one that has no
standards for membership, that doesn't say  much about us. BUT, if we are
active in a group's leadership, and abide by its principles in our business
practices, that can speak volumes.
