    I used to and it helped a lot starting out. I think for someone your size, it would be a good way of networking. For the "little guy" like me, it was too big of an expense for the benefit to keep it up.

    I'd agree with Mick. It was extremely worthwhile my first several years, has become less so over the past few. I learned a lot, had a lot of ideas that I had reinforced.

    There are certain places on the 'Net that can help out just about as much too.

    Small.
    I dont find the 200 bucks a year too bad myself. I have met alot of people in the industry threw Sima. The networking to me is priceless.
    If you get one lead from there Contractors list what is that worth ?
    I did 60k last season for a Company that found me on Sima's site. This year it should double.
    They have a mentor program that could really help out a guy who needs alot of help to get up and going. I didnt do it, I wish I had.
