I am new to IV and from GA. Why is GA chapter so sleepy? Everyone got their GC from July 07 fiasco. Sounds reasonable...

But how do new people joining the GC line pick/wake this chapter up?? (for the new 3 Lofgen bills for now)

State chapters might be sleepy becoz the chapter leaders might be pre-occupied with other stuffs and there aren't anyone else to lend a helping hand. State chapter leaders are also individuals like your and me, and they too have their jobs and personal issues too. The best way to make an inactive chapter active is participate in the chapter and possible lead from the front.

Hi doknek,

I am assuming you got the June 19 update, and have already participated in the action item. In order to wake up the "sleepy heads :) " in GA, you could post your experience while calling the Reps, and write about what you said. This may help in encouraging the rest to participate.

Regards.

Someone else needs to take over the leadership there if the leader is busy. Pls contact Paskal if you are interested.

So rather than pass your wise comments, why can you not be one of the leaders of GA? ;)

I did not expect to see so many responses to this thread in just a few hours. My my...I was wrong...people were not sleeping but just napping.

Are you all calling local GA congressman? I called once and started calling them again today. Do you think it is important? I cannot prioritize between calling GA congressman/ CHC/ Call List 3/ Call List 2. I know latest IV update is most important, but after that should we try to wake up some GA congressman or ...

Nice to see some activity here

I'm MIA and sorry for that. I travelled to home country for an emergency trip and unfortunately didn't have access to Internet till now. I've approved the pending requests and also resend the messages posted earlier. Thanks to yabada and others who took action in my absence.
