You should join the SDA because the SDA can give help and guidance. It’s like insurance for your job. Peace of mind with the SDA.  


I think the question should be this:  Why should somebody not join the SDA? That list would be short.  


Being a member of the SDA is important because I'm not good at speaking up so I need assitance to help negotiate on my behalf.  


The SDA organisers are always there to help, If I have a question no matter how important or unimportant I think its is, I just call them and they help me...It's that simple!
