We have some excellent volunteers from Long Island and we would want more activity from this area.

Please volunteer for local meetings. PM me if you are interested, I will drive over to your place if we can gather enough crowd and do a meeting

Come on folks - all the way to Riverhead we have tonnes of people living in these areas affected by Retrogression.

EAD is not a solution - EAD just makes our life a bit easier than on h1b - the struggle continues even on EAD.

How can you expect govt to fix your problem if you lack motivation?

Lets start mobilizing the chapter

Remember, we are no VIPs, we are in a mass distribution system and no one has special previlidges here, your lives won't change uless you motivate yourselves and speak up for yourselves.

We need a very strong resprsentation from everyone in the community.

Ignoring our requests only puts all of us in a tougher situation

We have people. Looks like there is a communication gap here, many people do not visit IV site that often.

Mobilizing upstate and Long Island is my next priorities.

New Jersey is picking up. It went down completely few months back but is now jumping back

Connecticut is also reviving - We have some very dedicated members in this area working extremely hard to mobilize this chapter

Mark is from LI. I wonder why he does not show up any more. Has he quit IV?

He is active - he is a big guy now, sometime back, I approached him for his autograph, and he said he does not have time to sign autographs :D:D:D

Jokes apart - Mark is very much in IV. He is involved at the national level more than the State level - he does make sure he is in conference calls and if we have a meetup in his area, he will make it for sure.

It was nice to meet all the folks out in NYC yesterday. Bigining with 20 is not a bad sign on a firday night. Thanks Chandu!
