Default New FA scenario?

Hi I just registered for FA and got BBA.
I also joined a google group and noticed that they are doing something about dogs....

Is there a new FA scenario?
Is there any active group doing BBA right now?

thanks

My question about BBA is why do we have a 10 year projection for a 1 year project who can be extended for no more than 36 months...

If I remember correctly, it is a one year contract with a 10 year run off period.

At least that is what I assumed.

If I recall correctly, so long as the customer had activity (earned more miles, used some, whatever) the account remained open?

Thanks for your replies.
I got it now.
Initially I thought that miles must be redeemed in 36 months after they were earned but actually if there is any activity on the account, the earned miles may be redeemed later.

one of my biggest gripes is that "activity" is not defined. does miles earned count? if so, then how could the task 1 data be adjusted? because, since it is an ongoing program people will be "re-uped" more than with the CDL program. this will distort miles earned and redeemed. throwing out those people would remove a lot of data, and bias whatever conclusions you make too.

Yeah, but the data for task 1 was so incredibly horrendous that I think you'd have problems adjusting it anyway. Even from the random sample set of 200, there were people earning/using miles and forfeiting miles within a 3 year time period (IIRC). The data either wasn't built around the same parameters of the current program (which was supposedly the case), or is so very error-ridden to be useless anyway. Not to mention very old, provided you assume that this exercise is being done in the modern day and not 2005.

So is this thread just a false alarm or is there actually a new FA? If somehow I don't pass my second go and there's an entirely new FA, I might just have to shoot myself.
