This past spring the Boston Branch reorganized its membership options to
have branch membership and RSCDS membership. You can be a member of the Boston
Branch and you can be both a BB member and a RSCDS member. One of the
driving forces behind this move is that RSCDS membership fee was increasing faster
than the Boston Branch could keep up with and the Boston Branch found itself
subsidizing its members and had no money for local activities. When the
dollar was strong it was not a problem but now the dollar is weak and the Branch
felt that it could not continue subsidizing its members, neither could it ask
for large dues increases every year.
