I question this premise.
Chapters have fees because associations have fees; they should follow 
the laws and customs of their geography and a one-size-fits-all global 
regulation would be a big mistake. (It might even be illegal in some 
jurisdictions for some associative forms.)

I also question your secondary premise that interested people are left 
out by fees, and I encourage you to demonstrate this claim.
