A Student Saves Money to Pay 80-20 Dues


If you have paid your dues and have NOT visited web page:

yet, YOU MUST. If your name is NOT there, it may mean 80-20's
record is wrong, & you will NOT have a vote. ##################

All of us at 80-20 were moved by the following email correspondence:

(A) A Student E-Mailed To Suggest That 80-20 Institute A "Student Membership"
Of $15 Per Year:

Dear 80-20 Staff,

I have been on your e-mail list for a couple of years now, and am very

impressed with what the organization has become with your leadership
and direction. I want to contribute monetarily and becoming a voting member,
but like a lot of the folks on the e-mail list, I am still a student. I
suggest that you create a student membership ($15/year), so that folks
like myself can become an official member.

Respectfully Yours,

Harrison (last name withheld to avoid embarrassing the student)

(B) S. B. E-Mailed Back To Offer An Alternative Solution:

80-20 has considered setting student dues but decided against it because
a lot of students spend more than $35 during their weekends. In your case,
things may be different. Will you send me your address? I'd be glad
to send you a "thank you" gift of $20 personally. Then you
can pay the full fee. I'll do the same thing next year as well, until
you are not a student.

I am very moved by your e-mail. The next time we have a Steering
Comm. meeting, we'll discuss the matter of student dues again.


(C) The Student Decides to Tighten His Belt & Pay Full Dues:

Dear Mr. Woo,

First, I want to thank you for responding to my e-mail. Second, I am
currently studying abroad in China until this June. Going over my semester
budget, I will be able to make the full membership dues 35. I hope
that you and your staff will keep up the great work because we

ARE making a difference.

Respectfully Yours,
