should i feel honoured?

knowledgeable friends:
i've been nominated by CSU East Bay for membership in the Golden Key International Honour Society. i've looked into it, and it seems like it might be worth dropping the $80 entree fee for the membership, but i figured i should ask around a bit first.
are any of you members of this society? if so, could you tell me whether the membership has done anything for you? i might be willing to join on ego alone, but i'd like to enjoy some benefits as well if i can.
members of other honor societies are welcome to weigh in, too. how has being a member of such a group helped (or not helped) you?
