I agree with HHuckeba that it would be great to have preferential pricing for current members (members whose membership has not expired yet). It seems it might incentivize members who don't renew until they need to "use" their membership again.
As a workaround, is it possible to use coupons for this? For example, on June 1, could I send an email to all members whose memberships expire in June, with a coupon code for $10 off of their renewals through the end of June? It wouldn't match up to people's renewal dates exactly, but it would be a pretty fair workaround.
[/quote]Seems like a good workaround.
A good solution could be to build preferential pricing into membership levels. Renewals before a certain cut off date (3 months from expiry) can be cheaper by a fixed amount or percentage. Or membership levels could include automatic coupons, to be sent out at various times before renewal is due.
Overdue fees seem punative to me. For some organizations and businesses, they could make sense though.

I'd appreciate a jobs module as well.
I had originally hoped to use the blogs module to manage our jobs postings, since they're relatively infrequent, and since it has an RSS feed, but at the time it didn't look like the "Add Comment" could be shut off, and we definitely don't want comments with job posts. I'll post more in the appropriate section.
We ended up just posting individual pages and handling them manually. My own organization is getting antsy about this as well, and I'm aware that other organizations in our position have gone with other solutions.
