Dea Michael,

In essence I agree with what you are saying, howver,
there appears to be one or two points in error...

>I guess this is probably worth pointing out explicity.

>The higher the membership fee, the higher the self interested required

>level of benifit roughly equivilant to the fee.

>Taking the reverse, this obviously implies that to get the broadest

>
>Given that it appears that you want to the broadest represenatation,

>Now against this, you obviously want to raise enough money to run the

>(fees == total cost divided by the expected number of members if the

>
>Given that the only real variables in there are Ct, and F 

(THIS SHOULD READ "E" , and F is

You also do need to pay for the admistrative cost's phone's / faxes etc etc ...
BUT your equation and reasoning are the ones that need to be followed...
Cheers, BK.
