First a couple of suggestions from our FAQ:

UseCodeTags (XML code works well for JSF)

Is that validateLogout() method part of a managed bean named "member"? Does the method not get called? Does it get called, but the navigation doesn't go where you expect?

Your action statement isn't working because the action isn't a statement. It's an EL expression that references a backing bean action method, not calls it directly.

Lose the "()".
