Feedback on membership cards to the interactive site.

Responses have varied from "some of these "Social Network" type sites have a number of issues that may cause both individuals and the association much grief", which is actually why the cards were introduced to help protect out integrity, to, "I personally think it is a wonderful idea if it assists in keeping those that are entitled to have access to the site."
