RAMS needs to adjust annual fees for Membership:
Can you imagine belonging to an organization that provides you with valuable services, information, advocacy and professional lobbying services and hasn’t raised its fees for those services in over 21 years? Well, if you are a current dues paying member of RAMS, that is exactly what has occurred. RAMS has done a tremendous job of doing the work on very narrow margins with the funding they receive, and the time has come when it can no longer continue to do so without increasing annual fees to assure the continuance of those valued services.
