Thank you for taking initiative in your chapter.

Another state chapter organized a conference call yesterday to discuss their action items. Such active action items will certainly help push the advocacy efforts we are trying to do.

Firstly, thanks for the initiative and needless to say we're indebted to everyone's efforts here.

w.r.t this meeting in Rockville, What's the agenda?

'first come to the meeting and you'd know the agenda' is not the kind of answer, I'm looking for.

What are we going to do specifically for the 2 hours?

Best!

Agenda is : How do we get convince congress and Administration so that we can get Greencards.

If nobody is interested in the above agenda, then we will divide all attendees into 2 groups of EB2 and EB3. Then the whistle will blow and fist fight starts for the next 2 hours. The last man standing gets his greencard on Monday.

Agenda is how do we get our concerns on the lawmakers table and their agenda. As stated so many times by the CORE we cannot expect to have our language in the Bill the day it is being tabled. Instead we should be working much ahead of time leading to the introduction.

Also it is important to regroup as a team. Look forward seeing you on Sunday.

Cheers,
Rayoflight

You should put a disclaimer saying you were "Just Kidding".

Hi Everyone

A BIG thank you to all those who attended the MD/DC/VA meeting in Rockville . The get together was constructive and i was hoping for few more attendees. For those who attended , i hope IV has inspired members to go and meet the local represetatives in the local offices. IV wil help you with required documentation and talking points if you need help.

Guys those who could not attend today, please make sure you followup with your represtatives and make them aware of your issues to them BEFORE any Immigration bill is discussed on the floor. you need to organize and make your voices heard in DC otherwise even if the CIR happens , it is not a guarantee that all our provisions will be addressed in that. This message is for ALL members ( irrespective of EB2, EB3 etc..)

If you need any help, please contact local chapters or IV admin starsun.

Hope we will get something done this time for EB community

Thanks
Ravi.
