Dues are paid, money is raised, merchandise (books, magazines, and newspapers) is sold, but rare is the ISO member who knows that the organization's 501(c)(3)--the Center for Economic Research and Social Change (CERSC)--bought and sold thousands of dollars in Caterpillar stock in 2010 in spite of the ISO's support for the Palestinian boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign's targeting of Caterpillar for selling Israel the bulldozers it uses to demolish Palestinian homes and kill activist Rachel Corrie.
It is for the ISO's membership to decide, and they cannot do so when they have no clue what the organization's assets or liabilities consist of and are denied any formal control over CERSC. They cannot discuss and decide how best to spend CERSC's $1.5 million in yearly revenue on organizing projects when these matters are handled internally as a state secret and questions about them from members are viewed as a sign of disloyalty to socialism rather than what they actually are--a principled commitment to the basic democratic norms working-class people are entitled to in their organizations.
