ASA doesn\'t suck
I'm trying to be positive. I need to for reasons other than communal harmony.
The ASA is a cool group in serious need of help. The main staff is working at a fevered pitch to turn things around and to do so quickly. Expect lowered dues, more website updates, greater local representation and a more concise newsletter.
But this is gonna take more work and help is needed. I just wanted to voice my support for the group and I hope I'm not alone. But please, I implore you, do not call the efforts of many volunteers a waste or say we suck. No one wants to waste there time trying to do things for people who don't appreciate it. If you don't like it, don't join.
But if you like the idea of the ASA, then I ask you to please stand forward and be counted. I need to know, as others, that our efforts aren't in vain. Am I knocking myself out trying to get a NE Zook event together for people who think I suck? Does Bill J. rush to make printing deadlines and editorial changes for people who feel ripped-off? Does Glenn W. work on land use issues for the hell of it? And the others who do what they can (pro bono), is that a waste too?
Please, give the ASA a chance to regroup. Actually, give it more than a chance. Try to lend a hand where you can. If you're not a member, then please join. If you are a member, please contact your local rep and see what you can do to get involved.
I will now quitely get off this soapbox.
