it depends on why you want to join. im a member and i find it worth while.

what other alternatives to PLANET do you think there are? there are smaller associations for the sub sets of this industry, but PLANET is working on uniting them all. They are well on their way.

I am a member of PLANET. It's not bad, but I thought that the PLCAA was better organized and you received more stuff.

I don't want to bash PLANET, because I will probably always be a member, but if you are looking to spend that kind of money for the first time in a membership, I would recommend joining the local chamber

I actually voted against the merger. I think that I was one of only 2% of people that voted against it
