An organization needs to provide some benefits to its members, or it ceases to become relevant to them....
Note that - I'm not anti Aikikai, in fact, I support the idea of a general umbrella organization like the Aikikai. However, I think that realistically if the Aikikai wants to remain relevant for the next 50 years they have to make some serious changes to their model.
What benefits do you think the Aikikai should provide to its members that it currently does not? What serious changes do you think they have to make to remain relevant?
