universities being founding PLUG members. however, it is also true that
they were representing themselves more than the school. this is also
true today. most PLUG members do not really officially represent their

some points i agree on:
- granting of "lifetime membership" to the founders (not the
changelings in DS9)
- granting of "lifetime membership" yearly (sacha suggested this i
believe. i am not sure. we can call it something like the "Philippine

some points i don't agree on:
- institutional members are okay. but, they should not be lifetime.
we would like institution to "renew" their commitment to the organization

individual members do not have to symbolically renew because they have
already done enough. organizations on the other hand change.
- definitely we do not need a members only list. we have enough mailing
