Astronomy league dues increased by 43%

I have a question for officers in other astronomy clubs. Due to the fact that the
Astronomy League has just increased its dues by almost 43% my club is questioning if it’s worth staying on as a member. The AL is a very worth while organization plus the Reflector and observing programs are some of the benefits of being an AL member, but $5 per membership is more then we want to pay. Also in my opinion the cost of the Reflector should be paid by those who advertise in it not it’s members other wise it is not a benefit just a hidden cost.
When our club first decided to join the AL one of our major reasons was the low cost group insurance that we could get being a member of the AL. Well that like everything else has gone up over the years. So my question is, other then the AL insurance plan who do you get coverage through?

I would appreciate your comments.
