After reading below, why would I want to join CFHS?

After reading what was posted below about what sounds like disorganization and gross mismanagement of funds, I wonder why I would be compelled to join CFHS. I am not being sarcastic here, I just feel it is very important for officers (elected I assume) to look out for the membership. What I read below is the stuff lawsuits are made of. If you are told "your membership fee pays for a newsletter and access to meetings," that is one thing, but it sounds like there are some pretty large sums of money being dealt with here. I feel it right to further add that a nonprofit organization, especially when it attains any size, needs to be run like a business, otherwise you get exactly what is described below. For instance, the United Way (this could be a bad example, I don't know) is a non-profit organization, but it is run as a business. I've thought about joining CFHS, now I don't know. Maybe someone could sway me in one direction or another? It's sad that so much boils down to money and gets away from the initial ideal.
