Dear Ninang Dr. Joy: Congratulations again for agreeing to return to the NaFFAA national leadership. Further our telephone conversation this morning, I wish to confirm in writing that for as long as you are with the NaFFAA national leadership as the chairperson of its new Development Committee, we will hold our horses and not criticize the NaFFAA national executive officers. We trust, however, that slowly the NaFFAA will be able to render full accounting of the revenues and expenses for its national conventions and global networking conferences. And we remind you also of an adage that an Ilocano-American retired dentist said: "Don't pour clean water in a dirty jar." We hope that eventually the NaFFAA jar of unity will be so clean that we can all drink from it. Mabuhay, Lolo Bobby M. Reyes * * * * * In a message dated 8/9/2009 9:43:55 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time, joybruce writes: Dear Ernie, Thank you for your vote of confidence and your nice words about me. Your recommendation to follow Bobby's fundraising proposals are much appreciated. However, I would prefer to hold off from agreeing and committing to something that may be too much for me to handle personally (I'll be responding separately to Bobby on this). Likewise, I would like to wait until the Board decides on the Development Committee before working on the specific action plans. Considering the current financial and programmatic status of NaFFAA, getting it back on its feet will not be that simple, it will take time, and it will need quite a bit of work and cooperation from everybody. For now, I'd be cautious about biting more than I can chew (and I can't do much until after Aug 15). . But I do agree with you that one way to start is to become more open and more inclusive than the way NaFFAA has been in the past - and to consider taking critics like Bobby back into its fold, as long as there is someone who can manage to keep him under control. I think that you and I as well as a few others can work with Bobby in an amicable way and engage him into lifting NaFFAA up instead of constantly pulling it down. That would be a welcome change indeed, if the Board allows.... Joy
