An anonymous commenter notes that the ACS bylaws only allow unemployed members to waive their dues for 2 consecutive years. While I suspect that those 2 years might be able to cover most unemployment circumstances for many members, this Great Recession is marked by high numbers of the long-term unemployed (6 months +).
Why not extend ACS unemployment benefits to 3 years?
I can't imagine that this would cost a lot of money (maybe I'm wrong.) Isn't this exactly what you'd want from ACS? I think it's a good idea. What do you think?
