I would like to respond to the “Use of Dues” letter by Margina Busby (April 11, 2011). I have also had many questions about where our money goes. I am an SLP in the public school system, which is experiencing a major budget crisis as so many districts are at this time. There is no money to help maintain or increase salaries yet we have to pay the rate of $225 that was increased a couple of years ago and we have to pay for our state license and our CEUs. I would like to see either a decrease of the dues or ASHA become more helpful to its members by offering free CEUs. I have to question at times why other companies (Super Duper, etc.) can offer CEUs but our own association cannot help us in that area. ASHA needs to take a look at what members really need and work for our needs. Thank you.
