I wonder about the 41% since it reported at 48% in the 2006 benchmark and I haven't seen associations eliminating components.

It would also be interesting to see how the 26% manage their components.

Interesting data point. It's no wonder that there are disconnects between parent organizations and their components with so few to foster relationships.
