    Isn't it time that the affiliate population got together and formed a non-profit association/organisation?

    We seem to have so many reasons to work together as a group, and yet the majority of the time we are only working against one another.

    A formal association would have relevant figures to work with - e.g. our membership of 3000 affiliates would like to address (insert issue here), and so forth.

    I would also feel more comfortable with putting $$$ towards a fighting fund against parasites etc, if there was a formal means of doing so.. where accounts were kept and the books were audited, such as with most associations.

    Nearly every industry in the world has numerous associations working for the good of the industry. Whilst we are a relatively new industry, our current issues are a grave cause for concern, and I just feel it's time that we showed some unity.

    I'm sure the knockers will tell me why it will not work, and why it can't be done, but I think it is worth a shot.

    Together we stand.. divided we fall..

    We can all focus on fighting this issue as a group and yes other members are doing something to organize something that will benifit us all in a long run!

    Just keep trying your best to voice your opinion and give all the support you can to this issue while we wait for the "Action".

    Love Life to the fullest. we only get ONE chance! :-)
