Good work team BCBA

Alvito Fernandes

I would like to compliment the working committee and all those who put the meeting together for their fantastic efforts!

At the same time I would urge every member who attended yesterday to attend the monthly meetings regularly because that is where business is actually transacted. 

A case in point is myself…I run a Study Abroad  Consultancy..and I am now actively associated with Nilesh Menezes(for net worth certifications for our students) Samson Gomes (for property valuations) Besty(for IELTS training) and Orvil D’Souza (for Digital Marketing), while I have also received references from members. This is because we attend monthly meetings and are most active in the association and hence get the most benefit from it.

Im sure the working committee and all members will agree with me.
