At 4:43am on October 23, 2010, Bill Yekeku said… Thanks so much for the infos, I know it is not easy to get everybody at the same time for meeting. so for me, I think if we have a board set up then the board can meet or have teleconfrence where they will discuss the coming invents for the association and than let the rest of the members know on our website and from there each one will be able to give his or her opinion and we can start from there. Another thing that will make us move farward is to have board member or representitive from each of the states and abroad so that they can be able to reach their members with in that area of contact. For example, I'm from MN, if the Board comes up with a plans and then inform me about it, I will contact all the members with in MN about the plans ahead. I will be more involve when I come home from deployement so we can take this org. to another level. I appreciate your concerned MATT. Take care and may God bless u and your family
Was contacted by Bill yekeku about planning a LAVA event. You know we tried organizing a LAVA weekend this year but that fell through. We needed dedicated individuals. I was thinking that we can plan something for early next year... LAVA formal ball. I am headed for Afghanistan by May 2011. contact me DSN 314 380-5712 or send me yours
great concept!The execution piece will be the problem. I had out this concept awhile back because I felt that we should establish regional LAVA chapters. Even wrote the By-laws to govern the organization. I set up commitees and asked people to volunteer for those commitees. Even got a free conference call number that we could use but momentum was lost because people did not volunteer.
My thinking now is that we get few dedicated individuals to plan the event(LAVA Weekend), invite folks down, establish a leadership body during the meeting through a voting process and discuss the direction that we want LAVA to go. This may be the ball that gets the organization rolling.
on the other hand,I am open to whatever directions the rest of the members want to take because I believe that LAVA has the potential to do incredible things not only in America but also in Africa. send me ya number so we can discuss this.
I am in Afghanistan right now... been here since May. will probably come Stateside next year. what is going on? Also I met your dad in Liberia last April. he is my Frat brother. Liberia is truly a small place.
end me your contact including DSN and I will call you
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org) ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
