Can't find anyone has dealt with this before. I'd appreciate some thoughts if anyone has a workaround.
We're a professional association. We first only allowed our members to join, but to get the critical mass of more participation, we opened it up to others. Eventually it was thought we'd find a way to create premium features exclusively only for our paid members.
The thing we most wanted was to restrict the public search of Members so potential clients would only find certain specified members - the ones who are paid members of our association. But I haven't found a way to do that.

Any thoughts on a way to do what I'm looking to do here?
