ASA Network 2022 Conference

ASA Network

To all members who have still not replied to below email please do so now.

Secondly for all members MGM have advised that all the pre Covid restrictions have now all been removed, and things are back to normal in Thailand.

Dear ASA members, as you are aware we have been trying to find out how the members feel about holding an ASA meeting in 22nd October originally proposed to be in Pattaya Thailand.

The response back is still many of you are worried about Covid and travel arrangements , but we have approx. 30 members who do want to attend a meeting especially many of the newer members.

We are now proposing we plan for a smaller meeting based on approx. 30 + members and maybe move this to a destination in Europe or we can keep it in Thailand.

Can you please tell us by return if you would agree to attend such a meeting in October 22- 24/25.  We need your reply back as quickly as possible if we are to arrange this, it maybe if we switch it to Europe more of you would like to attend.

Please everyone let me have your replies to

Reply:-

Yes I will attend in Thailand or Europe – Please specify which Thailand or Europe.

No I still wont be able to attend regardless where its held.

Many thanks for your help

Best regards

MTI Expess Morocco – membership terminated.

16th April 2022

Re MYI Express Morocco

You will all recall on the 16th February I wrote to all ASA members to advise of the terrible moral this member has towards paying it’s invoices, and that we had suspended their membership and posted credit warnings.

Since then we have been trying very hard to recover money due to a few members without success, and these have been passed onto Freight Deadbeats to now help recover.

Just to emphasize not to use this suspended/terminated member we are going to for a short time leave their MTI directory page in the ASA directory which has Red Warnings as a constant reminder not to use this agent in case anyone should forget.

Thank your for your attention

Dear ASA members please take time to read below and attached are the Rules on Red Alert System and how to Operate/make a report.

Firstly the Red Alert System details are all located in the ASA members directory front page. This lists all ASA members and their countries, we have now added an extra line at the end after “Mailing and Website ” Red Alert” which when a member has a red alert report against them – there will be a Red triangle with a ! inside the triangle.

I have put on an example of MTI Express Morocco,  so scroll down the directory list to MTI – Morocco and you will see the triangle on the right side.

Secondly if you now click on MTI directory page it will bring up their entry, right at the top you will see a broad RED strip with the triangle and in clear capital letters Credit suspended. so this is how a message could look, but we can put any message we want such as Note: Very slow payers etc. or some other message.

This is a simple good visual we can use and members can see at a glance if we try to add more and make it more complicated will make become more time consuming and impractical without redesigning our whole ASA website at some considerable cost..

I have also produced a simple Red Alert Reporting form for members to complete and send.  Please look at this simple draft report form. we can amend this in the future if need be.

Reporting a Red Alert: When in the ASA Directory page if you click on any ASA member it will open that members info and on the top right of the page you will see a Red menu box “Report RED ALERT” click on this and it will bring up the form to complete and send to ASA Management.

Please take a moment to play with the system and read the suggested Rules, then let me have your comments/views, before we circulate this to all members.

The rules are attached to this link

ASA Conference / Meating 2022

 

ASA Network Conference 2022

 

This is an open letter to all members; we want to hear back from each and every one of you regarding holding our annual ASA Conference in 2022.

You will recall for the 2020 & 2021 we had to postpone these annual meetings due to the Covid – 19 epidemics around the world which made it very unsafe to travel and due to many countries closing flights and boarders.

This year at present the Covid situation is a lot better with all countries rolling out ant-Covid vaccines and countries opening their boarders and we can see that travelling has become much safer and easier with flights resuming.

However, we know that some countries still have imposed quarantine/isolation restrictions on arrival into their country, and some demanding a negative Covid test certificate before boarding a plane. But again, we hope these individual country restrictions will be eased over the coming months as Covid becomes less of a threat due to the vaccination programs.

We would like to get your feedback regarding attending an ASA Conference later this year say in October, we are looking to hold the conference in Pattaya Thailand. Can you please let us know your thoughts to the following options, to enable us to make a quick decision on plans for 2022?

We have already been contacted by quite a few members wanting details about this year’s ASA conference/meeting.

Option 1) I will certainly attend the conference this October, even if it is a smaller than normal Conference.

Option 2) I’m not sure at present if I would attend.

Option 3) No, I think we still need to give more time to ensure Covid does not reappear with a 4th wave.

Please let us have your answers by no later than the 4th March, so we have time to evaluate and make decisions for this year, including booking a hotel for this year.

Send your replies and comments to Roy Loken & Robert.

 

Many thanks & keep safe.

Best regards
