Nicely done Caute_cautim. I too have ISACA dues, and they are expensive. Of course they have some really powerful resources (COBIT for example).
A good explanation is due all members, to include expectation setting and deliverables.
I think the math is correct, as I just had to renew and was blown away. I called and after a good 20 mins of both of us writing down dates and going back and forth, I posted my best understanding of what I was told and what I had to pay. I certainly would appreciate an "official" response to this thread.
I've been thinking about this all day...
Is (ISC)2 really so out of touch with the US Federal space that they think this is wise timing?
Contractors have lost a month of pay - with no end in sight - and I'm guessing a number of Federal Employees have already had to reach into their pockets, even if only temporarily.
This is both insult and injury on top of insult and injury.

Ah! Interesting analysis!
My ISACA dues for my CISM, ISACA international and local chapter are $230 dlls.
I do get a lot of value out of my chapter, but I think it is expensive to keep my ISACA membership and CISM.
With ISC2 I have 3 certs right now, so I'm one of the few who will actually benefit from the change.
I will probably get more ISC2 certs because I already have to pay the AMF, so as many have guessed for me it's an incentive.
This is an utter travesty. Raising the price $40 a year with so little return is ridiculous. Can anyone tell me exactly what we get out of this? Other than the privilege of having a ISC2 cert? ISC2 has never aided or help with career placement. Their training material or news updates are subpar. There are a host of other sites which carry better information and training, which are free (Cybrary.it for one). Even paid sites offer a much better value than this (Pluralsight).
What exactly does ISC2 do for us members? What exactly do they do for us worth $125/year?
The only way this can possibly change if we all collectively stand up and say no more. We do have the power. I know a lot of us are scared to drop a ISC2 cert for fear of losing a job opportunity. If we as a community stand up, we change that.
We are managers, we are directors, we are CISOs. We can choose not to have job adds list ISC2 certs as a requirement or recommendation. If job adds drop this, suddenly the CISSP means nothing anymore.
If ISC2 does not step up and clearly define everything than can do for us members which makes membership worth $125/year, then I say we act. We, as members of the Information Security community, make ISC2 worthless.
We have the power here. We must come together and exercise that power.
