Re: theos-talk Re: Observations of a visitor to TS Adyar
- All out of country visitors can easily email their travel Itinerary to
Adyar so that they know the flight in which they arrive and try to help
visiting members. It is that simple. At the Adyar end, they need to come up
to speed to use Internet as a tool as everyone in the world is now using.
Let us see how things are handled in the next Convention.
It would also help if the Secretaries from various sections take up this
issue and if need be bring it up in the next General Council meeting.
Action on this issue will go a long way to help fellow members than all
other actions GC takes.
