Is Editorial Freelancers Association a Good Deal?

One of our readers wants to ask you all if joining the Editorial Freelancers Association is worth the cost. "It costs $105 to join (because I'm outside the NYC area) plus a $35 processing fee plus $40 a year to access their online job board.  I'd like to know if any of your readers get projects off the EFA job board."

I've considered joining EFA in the past, but ended up back in the classroom, so I have no experience with it. Please comment with your own experiences or even rumors... :)

Thanks,
Laura
