    lemme c, conference in July 2008 and apps to be reviewed coming Dec. How could dat b? Am I seeing an error or my medulla is tricking me?
  • Mr. Y

    You are damn right, I thought that my computer screen is playing tricks.

    Could you adjust the needed corrections to your posting, otherwise, it would be a hell of waste time for any youth member to apply.
  • I am not responsible for this information. I copied it directly from the FSM national government website. It is an announcement from the FSMPIO. You will have to contact them to clarify any errors.

    If I were to hazard a guess, it would be that the date of the conference contains a typographical error, and is intended to indicate that the conference will happen in July, 2009. Why would anyone assume anything else. For crying out loud, haven't any of you typed the wrong letter?
  • Oh please Sarem, printed info in here has to be reasonable, otherwise questions will be asked. Ask us to find the proper info ourselves but don't give bs, omusano

    Ai Tong
