Bangkok expats club - latest news

Recommended Posts

Hi --

Can anyone suggest a neutral venue so I can announce meeting times, dates, and the place for the meetings without me getting flamed?  I sure will apreciate it if someone can suggest some place that'll take me out of the line of fire!  ;-)

Any chance of you leading a discussion sometime on renting and purchasing vehicles here?  You can communicate privately with me via bangkokexpatsassociation@thai.com, if you like.

We would welcome having you discuss the issue -- it's so confusing to most of us who are not in the business, as you are.

Whether you're willing to do that or not, you are certainly most welcome at Wednesday's meeting (and any and all future ones, for that matter).

Thanks --

Mekhong Kurt

Hi everybody,

can anybody explain me the issue with these two expat things? Seems quite stupid to me. I think life is more fun and not fighting (especally in Thailand) ???

Let me get this straight!

To be a member of the "Club" you can not wear shorts and/or sandals?You must be a professional working person of the highest morality,meaning no relationships with anyone in the "nightlife"?

What make and model car are you allowed to own or drive?

Does your wife have to have a university degree and if so,does one from Thailand suffice?

Can you consume alcohol or smoke?

Do you qualify if you are retired?

What is the minimum income required to be a member.

There is a charge to attend as a guest,so does that mean that you have to pay until your membership is approved?

Can you be a member of both the association and the club or are association members barred from joining?

Are the rules decided or revised by the club or are they mandated by the leader?In other words is this a Thaksin type leadership or a democracy?

Does anyone that you decde you don't like personally,have to give up their membership?

Are personal secrets allowed or must you answer any question posed with absolute honesty?Is considered to be the proper to say "####" or must you say "heck".

Are you competing  against each other?Why are the two organizations meetings scheduled at the exact times and dates?

Why did you abruptly leave one group to start another?Will you do the same with the "club"?

A very moral person should be able to post an answer for all to see.right?

Have you considered having the club members wearing suits and ties only?

Re: Bangkok Expats' Club

This is a new club undergoing its initial

phases of organization. The club will be

directed by officers elected by you (members)

once up and running. We envision it as

members helping members, to include professional

meetings as well as social functions.

Initially we have specified some simple requests

for proper decorum and dress as well as

meeting procedures, such as the wearing

of name tags, etc. We appreciate everyone's

interest, participation and co-operation.

William IV --

The post immediately below yours is correct; I have nothing to do with the Bangkok Expats Club.

The confusion comes from the fact there are 2 such organizations; I am connected with The Bangkok Expats' Association, which has nothing to do with the other club.

We had our first meeting July 27th, so we are a new organization.

Cheers!

To Kurt and Joern:

There is a lot of confusion about these two clubs now. Kurt and Joern, please don't post in each others threads. When you open new threads, please clearly put your organisation name in one of the subject lines.

Good luck to you both!
