Dear Friends, 

Today, we gather in unity to mark a significant moment in our shared journey. It is a moment that pushed us to our limits, tested our mettle, and revealed our true strength. On this day, June 7th, 2023, we take a moment to remember—not with anger or bitterness, but with deep pride and an unwavering spirit. 

Let us reflect on the distance we have traveled, the unjust hurdles we have overcome, the battles fought without reason, and how we are now paving our way towards a brighter, more promising future. 

Recent revelations (APMP Board Meeting Minutes)  have shed light on the discussions that took place within the APMP board meetings as early as December 2021 or January 2022. And what followed was the unjust revocation of Baachu Scribble’s Approved Training Organization (ATO) status by the APMP Board of Directors on June 7th, 2022. Since then, we have endured baseless accusations, lacking any substantial evidence, while time continued to tick away. Furthermore, the APMP’s contradictory public statements in February 2023 exposed their own inconsistencies to their own members. 

Despite the passage of twelve months, we remain resolute in the face of APMP’s baseless charges, conflicting public statements, the board’s refusal to grant a fair Professional Ethics Committee Hearing (PEC), and the relentless stream of legal correspondence. The APMP Board has failed to produce a single piece of concrete evidence in response to our inquiries, leaving their allegations unsupported and unsubstantiated.  

Our lawyer has made it abundantly clear that APMP had no intention of following due procedure. They had already made up their minds to exclude Baachu without any regard. It is also worth noting that APMP lacks valid commercial contracts to enforce their alleged complaints against Baachu.  

We have compiled and presented the latest, complete facts and intricate details of this dispute, making them available for public scrutiny on our website here 

Baachu APMP Update

In these few months, the attempts of the APMP Board to erase our contributions including our success in training over 1,500 APMP Certified Professionals, FREE Scribble Training Scholarships, 180+ APMP Stories podcast episodes, and delivering presentations at APMP Conferences and Chapter events, hiding behind copyright claims to the industry speak volumes.  

“We’ve Shaken the Foundations: Unveiling the Fear of Change in Those Clinging to the Status Quo” 

In the face of the APMP Board’s silence, lack of transparency, and unjust proceedings, we have not faltered. Instead, we have turned these challenges into opportunities for growth and transformation.  

Today, we remind the APMP board, all APMP Members, and our valued friends that the light of truth and the pillar of integrity will always shine bright. This moment does not represent an ending, but the dawn of a new chapter where Baachu stands unwavering, infused with an even stronger sense of dedication. 

While our 14-day Justice for Baachu Campaign has primarily seen us on the defensive, we recognize that our true success is not solely measured by the obstacles we overcome but by the positive impact we create in the lives of our members and the industry as a whole. 

From our humble beginnings with 1,000 free members in February 2023, we have experienced remarkable growth. By May 31st, our community had expanded to 4,000 members, with a third of them being paid members, including 1,200 AI enthusiasts.  

Every day, we continue to attract 10-15 new registrations for our AI Scoop  membership, a testament to the industry’s unwavering support for our mission and a clear indication of the value we generate for the industry and also who stands on the right side of this dispute. 

But we are not content to rest on our laurels. We will press forward, breaking down barriers, democratizing bidding knowledge, and leveling the playing field. Our mission is bold and ambitious – to implement AI in bidding for 100 businesses and empower 1,000 individuals with AI capabilities within two years. We are proud to declare that Scribble is now the World’s Largest Skills and Talent Development Platform for Modern Bidders, with an unwavering commitment to revolutionizing the industry. 

This message may not resonate with those who chose to remain silent and passive during our struggles. However, for those who extended their support, faith, and bravery to stand against the tide of injustice, this message is for you. 

Amidst the challenges we faced, we also encountered moments of disappointment. Some, driven by fear or influenced by the APMP’s narrative, distanced themselves from us. It was disheartening, but it allowed us to discern who truly stood with us during the storm. 

To those who chose to step away, we want you to know that we miss the connections we once shared. While we may not collaborate with APMP directly if an unethical and biased board continues to lead the association, our hearts are warmed by the unwavering support of those who continue to stand by our side. 

It is in these moments of adversity that true friendships are revealed, and we are grateful for the bonds that have remained unbroken. To all those who have stood with us, kept us in your thoughts, and offered unwavering support, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. Your support, encouragement, and belief in our cause have inspired us to keep pushing forward, determined to create a brighter future for all. 

Those who engineered this injustice, hiding behind a veil of indifference, your actions will not go unnoticed. veiling their actions behind a guise of blatant disregard, will not fade from memory. The stain you have left on APMP history will forever serve as a reminder of the consequences of injustice. 

While some may have celebrated, thinking they had control over the outcome, let it be known that we will not conform to their expectations. Our journey is not dictated by their whims, but by our unwavering dedication to our mission and our unwavering commitment to our community. 

We declare without hesitation  

We are Baachu.  

We stand steadfast, proud, and resilient.  

Our progress will not be halted or undermined. As we continue to push forward, our true strength shines even brighter in the face of adversity. This message serves as both a gentle reminder and a warning – our determination and resolve are unshakeable. 

But our story, the Baachu Story, isn’t one of victimhood. It’s a tale of triumph over adversity, of determination, and of an indomitable spirit, born from personal bias and discrimination. We are committed to creating an ecosystem that celebrates equality, inclusivity, and justice. 

‘Justice for Baachu’ isn’t just a slogan; it’s a movement. Our ‘Baachu Talk: Equity Matters’ podcast has taken on a bigger purpose, featuring prominent DEI advocates. Together, we will tear down stereotypes, shatter barriers, and ignite the spark of advocacy in each of us. 

June 7th is now a symbol of our unyielding determination, our steady growth, and our unwavering commitment to democratizing knowledge in the business-winning community. Looking back on our journey, we feel nothing but pride. We faced obstacles, yes, but we didn’t waver. Instead, we used adversity as a fuel to propel us forward. Now, as we move ahead, we carry the wisdom we’ve gained from this journey, fortified by our past, energized by our present, and looking forward to a brighter future. 

Today, we want to remind the APMP board and everyone else again, lest we forget, that truth and integrity will always prevail. And Baachu stands strong, more resolved, and committed than ever. 

This day marks a day of resilience, a testament to our strength, and a commitment to better serve our community. It is not merely a reminder of the past but an affirmation of our future. As we continue to rise above adversity, we grow stronger and better equipped to make a lasting impact. 

We have always aimed to level the playing field, to create opportunities where they were lacking, and to foster a community where everyone can succeed.  

To my friends, We all face challenges in our lives, some of them unjustly imposed. But it is during these times that we discover our true potential to rise above. So keep soaring, for every challenge is merely a stepping stone on your journey to greater heights. 

We stand tall, we stand proud, and we stand together.  

Stand with us, for our story is your story, and your story is Baachu. 

With humility and determination, we continue our mission to empower professionals and organizations to achieve their highest potential. 

Together, we will overcome the challenges that lie ahead and continue to make a lasting impact in the industry we hold dear. 

With gratitude and hope, 

Baskar Sundaram and Team Scribble
