For most people it's better to be a member, when you need a tow (sooner or later every one needs a tow, even me) you just call on the radio, give me your member number and I tow you home no fuss or muss. Also members have priority over nonmembers which can mean the differ[a]nce of waiting 5 or 6 hours on a busy weekend.
I'm not sure you want to respond to this question but - Is it really the policy of your employer that you selectively respond to requests for assistance based upon membership status rather than exigency?
