This is not a complete list as I am at home and don't have an Outlook here- but these are the ones I know for sure- Alaska, New Mexico, Florida. There are others- I'm sure the NTA office could give you the correct count.

I will pass this information on to the members. Knowing how big the state memberships are might be of some help. Thanks again

Here are the numbers you requested...

Thank you CC,

The information will help as we discuss this issue at our next months annual
generalmembership meeting at our show. The facts always help when trying
to decide such a difficult issue.

Sorry to let you down George, but I have no further questions at this time.
Information isn't such a bad thing.

That is only 312 total for EIGHT states

That is an amazingly small number! I wonder how many non-members of the state also belong to the NTA and conversely if people don't join because of the mandate and the fact that they must join both. I HONESTLY do not want to extend this discussion, but I was under the impression that Pennsylvania had more members of their state organization than these 8 states combined. I'm amazed!

The Taxidermologist

Is it still that way?

This response submitted by Cecil Baird on 1/15/01. ( )

I have nothing against the NTA, but it seems to me several years back in our state taxidermy association, (Indiana) we looked into being affiliated and we had to have a 100 percent membership in the NTA to do so. Not many were members and we couldn't force them to join so it was dropped. Seems to me the NTA was hurting itself with the policy. Many people didn't like the annual fee to stay certified either.

Can anyone tell me if the policy regarding 100 percent membership is still in affect? I'd join if I had the time to go to the NTA shows, but with all the work I have, I can barely find time to go to our state show.
