As a result, we received twenty-six signatures from Stanford. This proves that we can greatly increase the power of the Network if each member puts in a little extra effort. Currently, we have very few members who are volunteering for coordinator positions. Therefore, we are unable to organize the Network properly. For the time being, I am asking each member to assume the responsibilities of the Area Coordinator for your area (the first three digits of your home ZIP code designate your area). In doing so, the net output of the Network will increase substantially. As we progress, as members recruit more members, and as more members assume the responsibilities of coordinator positions, we will be able to better organize the Network. Thank you very much.

In order to handle such a complex undertaking, we need to set up a system similar to that of Federal Express. Airplanes from all over the United States leave their home bases close to midnight. They meet at Memphis, Tennessee around one o'clock in the morning, exchange packages, and fly back to their home bases early in the morning. Your package gets delivered at your home or business before noon time. So, irrespective of the source or the destination of the packages, they all pass through Memphis, Tennessee. In a similar way, our next step involves establishing Pick-up /Drop-off (PD) Centers. Please retrieve the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of Indian community leaders in the US from the FTP site of the Network. FTP to 184.108.40.206 (plg. uwaterloo.ca). Login as "anonymous," and use your e-mail address as the password. Then change directory ("cd") to /pub/WIN/, and type "dir." The name of the file is "Community-Leaders." AIA Tamil Sangam \ | / Guru Nanak Foundation \ | / \ | / \ | / \ | / \ | / \|/ ASEI -------------0------------- AAPI /|\ / | \ / | \ / | \ / | \ / | \ Tagore Society / | \ Gujrati Samaj IAFPE You should contact all people who are active with Indian organizations in your area, convene a meeting, and establish one or more Pick-up/Drop-off (PD) Centers. Suppose there are "n" Indian organizations in your area--AAPI, AIA, ASEI, IAFPE, ILA, Kannada Koota, Maharashtra Mandal, and Prabasi. Therefore, you should make "n + 1" copies of the action plan, and arrange to have them dropped off at the PD Center(s) at your convenience. Similarly, whenever the association representatives have time, they should drop by the PD Center and pick up a copy of the current plan. The last copy should remain posted at the PD Center. This will ensure that all information from each MN (Member of the Network) gets disseminated properly without putting an undue burden on a few individuals. The input to the System should follow the same route-- Association Representative to PD Center to MN to the Network. There should be an "IN" box (coming in from the associations to the Network) and an "OUT" box (going out from the Network to the associations) at the PD Center.
