<sigh> Please read what was actually written, rather than leaping to 

"The Board of Directors would like the Grand Council to  consider the 
topic of _*membership dues with respect to "pay to play", "pay to
  participate", "pay to fight", or "pay to...?"*_"

"We would like the Council to study this issue, and to give us  an 
idea of the potential problems and pitfalls, the positives and 
what  the council perceives as the general feeling of the Society 
toward such a model."

The Board is basically asking "is this a good idea?" and/or "are 
there better ideas?" If you don't think this is a good idea, now is 
the time to write to the folks on the Grand Council (just as HE 
Armand asked) and tell them. If you have suggestions for better ways 
for the SCA to stay financially stable, now is the time to make them, too.
