His numbers show a loss of $17,000 in the final year and don't even include 2017. How do you figure it justifies keeping the dues the same?
And, since you have not been a member for a long time (the last increase was years ago), why do you care? I agree with John that $5 is a small increase for anyone invested in being a member of the club. I am quite sure that the dues increases have not come anywhere near the cost of inflation over the years.
