Jack, count me in as a Canadian who would like some kind of explanation. I paid $60.00 last year and was warned the dues would be increasing. Imagine my surprise this year at the $70.00 rate!!! As for stamps....the only mailing I receive is for my membership renewal. I access all Newsletters on-line, so there must be some other explanation.
I have no issue paying more (within reason) for a US based service, when it provides me with something I benefit from, but I'd sure like to understand this one!
Just as an added point of interest, according to the Bank of Canada exchange rate for today, I will have to spend $76.21 Canadian to pay for my $70.00 ANA Membership.
