Woah, back up folks.

$50,000 annual membership is for companies with gross receipts over $5MM or 
something absurd. Otherwise, it's $5,000 annual. There are far more of the 
small guys than the big guys in the consortium.

Plus, to dispell any notions to the contrary, the only difference is the 
amount paid, no difference in voting rights, representation, or anything 
else by charter.
