In response to a Post, a correspondent who appears to know JFNA intimately and from the inside, sent the following set of "Rules:"
" JFNA RULES
Federations will do nothing unless prodded to do so
To survive, staff and lay volunteers must not question or make waves
The best decision is one made in a phone booth
It all comes down to marketing
Intelligence is over rated
The best consultant is one not tainted by exposure to a local community (because there is little to learn from the local experience)
Overseas travel is good; overseas funding less so"
I thank the writer for his/her insights. I might have added the mandate from the current monarchy: "Let them eat cake but pay Dues."
