Why join The Bagpipe Society? A point of view.By:
At the AGM the question of discounts for attending the Blowout for members of the society was raised. The premise being that a discount is a reason for joining the society. I don’t really buy this argument as it seems a rather feeble reason for joining. Extrinsic rewards only work while the reward is present (remove the discount, the behaviour goes away), whereas you really want people to join for intrinsically motivated reasons, because then they’ll stick around and likely contribute to the society.
