    Get real, if the ATA folds (which it won't), why do you think that there will be any money left.

    Most organizations that fold do not have a lot of cash when they close their doors.

    No refund, but they do get a coupon for a free nipple piercing.

    No refund. The reason is the officers of the ATA will get theirs before you do. Plan and simple.

    A life membership to an organization means the membership is good during the life of the organization, not the life of the member.

    My father had a life time account with a welding co. Meaning he could refill all the torch tanks for a refilling fee. No rental on the tanks.

    Well after 20 years the co decided to end the contract with all of its customers. The judge agreed and canceled the contracts. We then had to pay a monthly fee on the tanks. We told them where to put their tanks and co.

    If they wanted to do something else thats fine. Just honor the old contracts till that person ended the contract or died. New contracts will be writen on the new rules.

    Life time means nothing now a days.
