I'd be surprised if none of the coaches ended up becoming active in PSIA (e.g. Ron Kipp). Personally, I would at least make the offer of "Your money is no good here". Their insights on how we can improve ski instruction are far more valuable than dues. I've already enjoyed one day on snow with Ron as result of this partnership. I'm happy enough that the members can take clinics from these guys and gals. I'm satisfied that planned follow up activities will be the equivalent of taking clinics, but at the same time acknowledge the opinion that the whole thing is just totally useless PR. The funny thing about professional courtesy is that you can cut through a lot of BS when you extend it or receive it.
