Who's Where in the Corporate World
[***Thank you for your interest. It is with mixed feelings that we have to inform our readers that we have presently reached our limit for new members. We are nothing if not accomoding, however, and have started an industrious wait list for those of you who want to join us later. So, please feel free to fill out an application and send it on. If a present member-elect is unable to perform his/her duties, whoever is first on the wait list will be offered membership. The humble SELEDA editors would like to thank all the Charter Members for their early and enthusiastic support of Wodet Alen! Hopefully, we will be able to expand, be fruitful and multiply in the very near future.***]
Regrettably, our ubër webmasters, paragons of respectability and all that is chaste, have refused to be complicit in a little scheme we hatched to gain carte blanche access to your hard drive. (Thereby, effectively bringing to a demise our early attempts at big brotherhood.)
We're busy working on corrupting them (what good are webmasters who won't moonlight as saboteurs), but in the meantime we've decided to do this the old fashioned way and actually ask you what we need to know.
... OK ...Right about now most of you are having flashbacks to the days back home when a curmudgeon Kebele rep would drop by to take yet another perpetually whacked out census. (Remember those? "Why yes, little Girma is still in pre-school. What? What mustache?") Relax. Take a deep breath, wipe clean those haunting childhood memories, and breath in... and out... in....... out. Now fill out the form.
Membership preference will be given to those with 'real' email addresses...(address your complaint letters to 'Dear Snobby Editors' ) i.e. no Hotmails or Yahoos.. unless you present us with a stunning excuse and/or bribe us with goods and services ... in which case we wouldn't care if your server was gedam-new-yalehoot.com. The membership roster will only be available to other members.
Completion of the forwith form, and submission of it in an orderly and timely manner. Until we get grounded we will limit membership to about 40 people, and then take it from there. So get in your application early.
You must abide by the strict honor system to respect peoples privacies, not to SPAM any of us, or use this forum for anything other than for what it is intended. (i.e. Thou shalt not weird us out in any way.)
Membership does have its privileges ... make contacts with Ethiopian professionals, know your fellow countryperson, get involved in the community, live well and prosper.
Tell us a little about yourself, what you would like to see on SELEDA, and how you think it will change your life.
