Joining a professional organization

I’ve joined a professional organization, the non-profit Editorial Freelancers Association (external link). It seems to be the best of the few groups that cater to freelance writers. It’s run almost completely by volunteers and members, most of whom are full time freelancers. Cost for a year, including a one-time sign up fee, is about $175. There’s a job board, a newsletter, on-line education classes, an e-mail discussion list, and other benefits. I think the cost is reasonable compared to other professional organizations. And the job list appears solid, serious, without any of the outrageous employer postings featured in the low cost freelance sites. I’ll give it a try and report back.
