As a professional, I believe it is critical that I support those organizations that are champions for the industry in which I practice. I am a current member of the GDC, RGD and SEGD, a past member of the UCDA and AIGA, and future member of IDC and IDNS. Quite simply, we should support those organizations that advocate for us. Cost, value and perks should not be part of the equation, rather my decision to join an organization like the RGD is based on community and advocacy.
