ADNA Memoranda & Articles

The current M and A creates an unnecessary barrier to participation by
current DNAs to ADNA's decision making from its inception.

In theory, the current M and A allows a DNA to subscribe as an associate
member.  However, in practice it creates a barrier by not setting the
membership fee for associate members and indicating that their fee will be
set by the ADNA Board at some future date.  No prudent DNA will become a
member of a body where its financial obligations are undecided and open ended.

There is a simple solution to this problem which is to structurely
separate the Associate Membership from the DNA licence fee.  The
Associate Membership fee should be declared in the M and A and it is
suggested that the fee should be set at the same level as for full
membership.  The DNA licence fee should be decided by the ADNA Board
based upon several factors, including the commercial value of the
licence to the DNA.

It is recommended that the next draft of the M and A be amended
