I would like to take a little different approach in responding to Alex.
There is another way to look at things when dealing with non-profits and charities. The bottom line may not be, "what's in it for me." By joining and donating to these types of organizations you are contributing to the purpose for which they were organized. In this case, you are contributing to the advancement of palm research, development, education, and good old fashion fun with others of the same ilk. For me, that is reason enough.
So to paraphrase a past United States president --- ask not what the IPS can do for you, ask what you can do for the IPS.

Gotcha boss. Just assign me when you are ready.
Never hesitate to add your opinion, ideas and suggestions. Anyone who is interested in volunteering to promote palms, their local Palm Society affiliate, the IPS & the IPS website and the PalmTalk Forum is always welcome to speak up! Before the IPS Biennial in Costa Rica I actually asked for volunteers in a different thread here, to do more or less what you're suggesting. And this might be a good time for a quick update since it's been several months, and I'm sure some of the Forum members who stepped up to the plate in that thread are wondering what - if anything - is happening.
A new IPS brochure is currently being designed, and will hopefully be available soon. When it is available, the plan is to contact various local Palm Society affiliates and ask for volunteers to help distribute these brochures at suitable locations. There will also be an announcement here on PalmTalk, and it's not necessary to work through a local Affiliate. In some areas, there's none. But this all needs to be done on a local level, meaning that volunteers in various locations will have to use their own knowledge and imagination to seek out those places that might be most likely to attract potential Palm Society and Forum members. And we are not necessarily looking for people who're going to sign up for an IPS membership right away. Many times this is a gradual and multi-layered process. Get someone interested in palms in the first place. Inform them of a local Palm Society affiliate they can join (while obviously also letting them know that the IPS exists!) and explain what the PalmTalk Forum is all about. If someone wants to go for an IPS membership right away - great! But that's usually not how it works.
