Rafael and I communicated by email before the holidays. If memory serves me, we were going to give [our current representative] until after the first to respond to our request for the return of our records. To date I have not heard from them.
Regarding [your poetntial associaition], We would be glad to talk with them. I had a voicemail from [them] before Christmas. I called him back yesterday. He was not in so I left a voicemail with the investigation secretary. I will follow up to make sure he received it. Let me try him again tomorrow. If I am not able to talk with him, I would be glad to write something for you to provide to them.
I have to say that we have had more contact with you these past few weeks than we have had from [our current representative] in at least the past three years. Many times, while paying association bills, I wondered what exactly we were paying them for. We are very happy to be re-associated with Paul and his firm. Our prior association with him was severed due to a unilateral decision by one person, which turned out to be a very bad decision for our members. Many people who were here then, and still with us today, were very happy to hear the news.
I will email you tomorrow.
