Never happens in our group. All voluntary.
And membership subscriptions to the group is not driving instruction.
IAM or Rospa?
Both will claim that all payments made are for matters other than the giving of instruction. I think this claim is a little more challenging for IAM than for Rospa. I find it particularly difficult to understand the claim in the case of Mentored Masters, and the price difference from Masters without mentoring.
It's RoSPA group (south Devon)
The only money coming in to the group is subscriptions and tutors do all their work voluntarily. Associates use their own vehicles so the only cost to the tutor is their time really. And knowing most of the tutors in my group, they are very passionate about what is done (the one who tutored me sure was) and they don't mind the time spent passing on their knowledge and skills.
