I have been a member for about 18 years and my wife and I have been local unit presidents. We recently rewrote the club's international website and it explains all the benefits of membership. Here is the link. http://wbcci.org/
If you have the time to participate in, and enjoy, the type of benefits offered, it is a good deal. The club has over a hundred local chapters and you may be able to find one close to you that you would enjoy attending. Each Local has a different membership make up and interests, so you should check out a couple, if they are close by. Most do not demand that you join before attending some events to sample. Give it a try.
