from the flame to the frying pan;
we tried so hard to get answers. I heard nothing past October 26 2012 but silent corruption is the norm in NYS disability services.

1) Why does the BIANYS FB page not allow for comments prompted by those who like the page? The BIAs for NJ, CT, MA, all do.2) Why have you both decided not to respond to a request to change the format of the FB page?3) What specific issues are BIANYS currently advocating for or against and how are they keeping their membership informed?4) What is the reason you have both chosen to ignore thoughtful email?5) When did you, Judy Avner, become executive director?6) How many persons with a brain injury does BIANYS currently employ?7) In what areas do you both believe BIANYS could improve?If the answer to question 6, is, as I suspect, none. Then the next step is what can be done about that, and when? In other words, how do we address it.Question 7, I don't know any organization that doesn't knows ways in which it would like to improve.Question 3 is completely reasonable given BIANYS's claim they are the leading advocacy group in the state.Questions 1 & 2 simply reflect the desire many of us have to have an open discussion forum for us all. How can that be anything but desirable for an organization that wants to know what its members are thinking and be able to have an exchange of ideas and proposals?The apparent desire to operate in an insular fashion, i.e. keep us out of the discussion, leads one to ask, what are they afraid of?
