I think you'll find many of them dropping out because all SAGE-AU did
was up their prices every year to levels that can not be justified for
what you get (I for one left for that reason, as did others I know),
what it is now 165 dollars LOL. But yes it has many more members today,
due to the "free" associate membership, when you turn them all into
paying 165 bucks plus a year (coz we know all it does it go up) then
maybe you can use SAGE-AU -> ITPA as a good example :)
