The SCA's legal agent represents the SCA, Inc., in more important
causes than any single one of us.  They're not a member, so why does
anyone else have to be?  (Yes, collectively we all do far more than
one lawyer.  Membership is individual, though.)  The stock clerk
handles more money than most branch treasurers, and she's not a member
(last I heard about Renee).

I have no problem with anyone wanting to encourage membership.  I'll
just say that, due to history and some thought, I'm not particularly
enamored of the Inc.

Since agreement gets passed over in silence all too often: I agree
wholeheartedly with Mistress Gunnora's points about (non)support of a
local group, that there may be good and honourable reasons for it.
