The bylaws of the JSF and its articles of incorporation define it as a
membership organization. Doing away with membership would require major
changes in the structure, constitution, and probably even the legal status
of the JSF. I would strongly urge that we work out the membership issues
within the context of the founding structure of the JSF.
