It is not worth it. I was thinking about it as well. Here is what I found out. A friend of mine, has been in business for 14 years and he has a B-(minus) rating with them, so we decided to call them, and they told us that the reason why he was a B - , was because he wasn`t a member but if he paid the $250.00 just like you that he would be have an A, rating ... I don`t know about that, but if you are dropping my rating just because I don`t want to become a member that`s called tarnishing the name of a Company? You don`t need it...
