    I was just wondering how many of you belong to the Professional Lawn Care Association of America, and whether you felt it a good investment or not. I do about 40K a year in regular lawn care sales, plus pick up some extra in trimming, weeding, etc. I currently work solo and pretty much always have (though that is set to change in the coming months).<p>My question is, who's in it and what are the primary benefits to membership, in your opinion?<p>Help me make an educated choice. Thanks! :)<p>-TGC

    Are they really gonna tell you any more than what you can and will be told on this forum? Sounds hip to be a member of something but in my opinion you are already a member of free info by being here. I don't know what they can do for you and they aren't getting any of my money!<p>Homer
  6. I will never belong to any associaltion that would have me as a member.

    lol...<p>My friends, you have just saved me money and time. Needless to say I will not be joining the PLCAA, or leaving this forum anytime soon for that matter.<p>Now I'll have some money for a Nilsson book or to pledge to Craig's trip... :)<p>-TGC

    I agree with stone, I would never belong to an organization that would let stone be a member.

    I also was a member of the PLCAA, no real benifits noted. High $$$ for a newsletter that basically told about meetings, etc.
