It is not a factor I use in my decisions.  I look at if the vendor has anything of value.

Michael, the local and state association I am involved with doesn't need the small income they get from vendor sponsors to pay the bills, but it does add some services and where the vendors are great is sponsoring educational opportunities. They expand the reach of the associations.

Not intentionally.  We patronize vendors who have demonstrated their value in their field - not just because the support an association.

I don't believe that I have ever seen a listing, and I know at various events it seems the vendors out number the Realtors.
