Always beware of organisations that have  three letter names.   Most organisations that are going to do any good have four or more.

I once gave a presentation to the BCS (British Computer Society) about TLAs (Three or Two Letter Acronyms) and how their ambiguity led to more distrust of technology than almost anything else.

It was well received but I suspect the audience were responsible for more NFG projects that were FUBAR that any other so called profession on the planet.

Never mind.
