The ITG membership fee is well worth it! The journal alone is worth the cost but there are also other benefits like the membership directory to help you find fellow trumpet players in your area. There are also periodic CDs of music and even a complete searchable CD containing everything in the journal in one place from 76 - 07. By the way, I believe the fee for the 2010 is around $350 USD. The site is actually calling for 440 AUD. I went to my first international conference this year and it was well worth the cost of admission!
