As I read NAO Don Macintosh's contribution featured in this edition of The Port
Hole, three words in particular exploded
off the page: quality of life.

Based on what we all know now, it's safe
to say Don has no issue with coming up
with
to cover the first CPS- CP dues
increase in close to 10 years. In fact, I'm
willing to bet he feels guilty for having so
much fun, for having gained so much, for
so little financial outlay.

Besides the tangible benefits his CPS- CP
affiliation has brought him easy access
to the latest courses in boating navigation
and safety education, for example
on
notes the lifelong friendships that his
involvement with our organization has
spawned. He says those relationships have
brought him " unique role models " and, as a
bonus, produced " some riotous occasions. "

I can't speak for Chief Commander Bolton
or anyone in a position of CPS-ECP board
or national staff authority but my jaw will
literally hit the oor if the dues increase

At the risk of the entire tree coming down perhaps but most?
on me, I'm going to go out on a limb and
boldly suggest that Don's experience is We should always be evaluating what's imshared, to varying degrees, by most all portant to us, what's key to maintaining our

decision is really no decision at all.
Well, in this same edition, you'll read Chief
Commander Peter Bolton's well-reasoned
rationale for a proposed CPS-ECP membership dues increase. He answers the
anticipated " Why now? " question as well
as breaks down what the real cost of the
increase is. Are you sitting down? It's about
$8 annually.

A membership vote on the proposed dues
increase will be on the table at this fall's
AGM. In the meantime, take some time to
ponder what CPS-ECP has brought you and,
of relevance here, your quality of life.
