Something I love about Esperanto organizations

I love the membership cards. What’s the point of being a card-carrying Esperantist, if you don’t get a membership card?

KELI membership card, 2011

I got this one in the mail yesterday, and shows I paid my dues to “United-Statesian” section of the League of Christian Esperantists International for 2011, if that wasn’t plain.

But apart from the symbolic value, membership cards can signal voting rights, link to services and log-ins and note benefits of membership.

This might not be the most practical of tools for church administration or religious associations, but they can be made easily with the gLabels software (for the GNOME desktop, usually associated with Linux users) I mentioned before, and I’ll begin reviewing it this weekend.
