It is a matter of current record that the CEO of Paypal is one of the few leaders in the financial community who is an ardent supporter of the campaign of Donald Trump. While I understand that the society cannot take political positions, and I would not want to try to encourage it to, I for one would appreciate having an alternative means of paying membership and conference registration fees made available. I have made the decision that I will no longer be using my Paypal account, as I don't want to be in the position of rewarding what I see as bad behaviour. Anyone who doesn't see this as bad behaviour is, of course, free to pay this way...but I suspect that many members of the society would appreciate having an alternative.
I have already mentioned this issue with the Executive Director, and will be sending in my membership renewal money by personal check.
