You've seen their stuff and the quality is good, correct?

1 This will be REALLY nice to have.
2 We'll buy it once and should be able to use it for many years.
3 This will make WPLUG look more professional.
a We're in the midst of a lot of concern about finances.  This is a bit of
  a stiff expendeture.
b We could buy a standard white board for a few bucks, print out a color
  version of the logo and glue it to the top half of the white board and
  have something similar for a lot less.

My specific questions are:
I) How much of a concern do we feel (a) is?
II) How much nicer would the FASTSIGNS sign be than (b)?
III) Should we add discussion about raising yearly dues to the next
     board agenda?
IV) Why do all TV reporters have the same hairdo?
