Hey, I met Denny at NHC.  Nuff said!

And you didn't even ask for a refund of your membership dues?  ;)

I thought I would have to apply for a premium membership to get that perk!  Oh, and Drew was cool, too! :P

I tell people we're in the same "club"...usually gets me a couple "Who?" or blank stares but one day it will pay off with a free beer or something  ;D

I love having access to the NHC seminars and I listen to them in the car on the way to work.  Not just the ones I missed but also to reinforce the info from the ones I attended (especially those on Saturday after club night  :o )

I'm lucky that I live near several places that offer discounts and I'll admit that the discounts are what 'justified' my membership at first. But after being in AHA for years I wouldn't cancel if I moved away. NHC is great, Zymurgy is great, and I think supporting homebrewing/brewing support and lobbying is great. Actually, my wife and I have a family membership and the extra cost does not earn us any additional discounts.
 
Also, now you'll have access to years of eZymurgy issues online. I've used this several time to read older articles and find recipes.

Yes, one of the things I like best about being a member is the friendships that are created.  Homebrewers are generally great folks, and always willing to share their expertise.

I joined to be a part of an organization that promotes our hobby, like many of you already stated.  Thought I'd toss that in here as my first post.  I've been brewing about a year, lurking on forums and learning.  I think I'm gunna enjoy learning a lot from you guys and gals here. 

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum!  You can learn a lot from the folks here - just ask.  A great hobby and really fine brewers who don't mind freely sharing what they know - you can't find a better combination than that.

Welcome!
I'm a relatively new AHA member, too. I joined in order to support this organization and to get the magazine. Honestly, until I just opened this thread, I actually forgot that there were member discounts! HA!

That may just be the name of my next brew - the bitter vitriolic red...in a long neck.
