AUGI Goes Freemuim

Autodesk User Group International (AUGI) sent word the day after Christmas (odd timing?) announcing the renaming of the free membership to basic, and fee based premiere ($25/yer) and professional memberships ($75/yr for  limited time, then $100/yr) in the organizations. The latter two have more access to archives (premium) and the newly restored monthly print magazine (professional). Really, a monthly print magazine?

I was in NAAUG (North American AutoCAD User Group) and GBAUG (Greater Boston AutoCAD User Group, met first Wed of each month at FST) back in the day.

I wonder if these sort of benefits will generate the hoped for 5% of paying members that freemium service providers aspire to capture. Do any other user groups in and around our space use this model?
