Default New Jersey Members : EXCUSES THREAD

This thread is exclusively for all the New Jersey members who, in the past have given excuses for participating in local activities or turned down IVs requests or have always been eluding IV at times of need by giving some excuse or the other all the time.

When we did a meet in Manhattan - a lot of members reached out to us and told us - if it was in New Jersey on a weekend we would all have made it. Now we see all these people are silent when we have done what they wanted us to do.

Please post all your excuses on this thread. This really helps us. We are reaching your doorstep and asking you all to step up and everytime we try to reach you, we get some excuse or the other.

Eluding reality is no bravery, to achieve something we must stand up and lift our head high and move forward. We cannot expect our issues to be resolved if we don't step up and show support.

Please post all your excuses in this thread. Existing hard working members are doing everything to motivate others to step up and we would all like to know what your problems are.

So please post all your excuses on this thread. We will try to reach you and see in what possible ways we can help.

c) Need to take permission from parents
d) Consider my fellow people in the same boat as below my standard.
e) In USCIS we trust.
f) I will rather apporach Manmohan Singh

Default What can we do better

What can all of us do together so that we get participication in IV events. Please share your concerns/ comments. We can resolve our issues only if we work together as a Team.

I belong to the So. Cal chapter and a lot of us in our group spend atleast half a day in our weekend to increase awareness about our issues. We take pride in working for ourselves. I am sure the Tri-State chapter is working towards our goals diligently as well.

Thanks sant. Carrots are always there, a lot of these people have been elusive by giving the silliest of excuses. They get on these forums and give all sorts of suggestions and blame IV leadership.

We have done this meet based on the feedback from all NJ folks that the majority of IV tri state folks sre from NJ and it makes sense to do events in NJ rather than NY. Now we take IV right to their door step and now, all those who suggested NJ on a weekend, are no where to be seen now, the same people who attended the NY meet are coming for the NJ meet aalso, driving all the way from their places.

We just want to find out from people what their excuses are, so that we can better help them. IV is our organization and it is our responsibility.

There is a huge membership base in NJ area and everyone MUST get active. This is intended.

This thread seems to be hijacked by genuine folks who are doing IV stuff. This thread was intended for the "Lame excuses" folks.

Top 10 Excuses:

1) There are already 24k+ members. One less member not active will not hurt
2) Would rather stay on tracker threads that day. I Would rather check my LUDs update over the weekend and wait for my GC in the mail
3) I am already a registered member of IV using the free registration. I have so many posts already. Isn't that enough contribution from me?
4) Would rather spend time for Amway/Quickstar
5) It costs money to travel. Gas prices are also high.
6) I am expensive. I want at least $150 /hr of my time.
7) Bring some film actor to the meeting and I will come to take the autograph
8) I only care for my greencard and not for others. Once I get mine, I will shut the door behind me.
9) I have a tail and its between my legs
10) I already have top 9 excuses above, so why should I come.

When we want those people who give excuses to write on this thread, we see all the hard working, genuine people including most dedicated IV core folks like pappu on this thread.

We want all those elusive types of folks who are always ready with excuses to post on this thread and not the highly regarded folks like pappu or others who have been posting here.

Come on folks, we need to see all your excuses. This will help us learn a lot of things, please help us by posting your excuses here.

We want them to, we want to know what the excuses are. We are holding this conference exclusively for New Jersey members and we want everyone to make it to the meeting, but we would also like to know what excuses people have if they don't make it.

It helps us and helps IV to plan things in future.
