I agree, especially since the goals of this Yahoo! group also
include system-wide change.
The ball is in his court since I have invited him to join our

A couple of asides to message 161:
In addition to inviting Mr. Quigley, I have forwarded a couple of
messages from this Yahoo! Group to him so that he can see for himself
that several of us would like him to join and participate. I'm trying
to be persuasive without being obnoxious (I know I don't like having
my inbox cluttered with unwanted emails).
If NPCA were to actively pursue the issue of poor service that we
receive from PCMO, OWCP, ACS, etc., then I would probably rejoin the
association. I didn't let my membership lapse over workers'
compensation issues, but having some help in that arena would be a
tangible enough benefit for me to reach for my checkbook.
