Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

I look at our situation as being very similar to the global warming ideology, and could be addressed in a similar manner. It is a left wing ideology. There is a sympathetic right wing media that we should tap into.

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Food for thought:

Who should we listen to the most?

Dues paying member $200 a year
Dues paying member $2000 a year
Dues paying member $20000 a year
Non dues paying person

I see many ways one could answer this.......

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Also, no disrespect intended...

Robert, could/would you refrain from replying for a while until we can get the ideas on the table? I don't want peeps to be afraid of posting opinions for fear of being ridiculed or shut down?

I think it's important to hear what peeps are feeling.

Again for the listening piece. What I perceive folks saying:

-Kooky said he could give a ratt's bum about the $200
-And
Was it Wynwood saying he would graciously give a thousand per salon?

The recurring theme is that it's not the money....

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Ok but who should the ITA listen to? Which voice should we hear the loudest?

Re: The Official ITA Bemoaning Thread

Oops there, I apologize Robert. I didn't mean for you to be put in front of the firing squad by any means.

Here's what I was hoping for:

Let peeps voice opinions and views w/out restriction thereby, letting peer members poke them apart and give credence to ones that are realistic and vice versa.

See if it is possible to form some form of agreement on which to present to you, to present to ITA and only then would we call you in to respond?

In essence, it would be our long dustance, online comittee to find avenues and realistic ways to gi about it.

Deal?

Dangerous if they had both sides of the story. That can be done and done through free media.

Do you really think that money trumps ideas? All the money on the planet will not change public opinion, which is what drives policy. We must present a different message to the public concerning indoor tanning or all is lost for this industry.
