Without voting delegates, there will be no need to instruct them, and no need for the units to discuss the issues to develop instruct them. Without proportional voting, getting enough votes to organize a resistance to the ideas of the leaders can only be done by a large letter writing campaign. The content of the Blue Beret is closely controlled by the International President and his EC friends. You can easily see that in the choices of the letters to the editor they chosen to print. Non-approved candidates for office were not allowed to publish their resumes, even when they volunteered to pay the printing and distribution costs. Therefore, the unbiased pros and cons will not reach the members in any organized way. The club lawyers have already threatened people who have used the club e-mail list in the past, so that method of communication has been threatened. The 40 % of the membership, without email addresses, are completely uneconomically reachable. Without the ability to organize and the need to have Unit meetings about the issues, the New Constitution will hamper the ability to organize and resist proposals from the top.

I can tell you how to make that happen.

That issue was fully addressed in the Revision, agree?

As you know I was very close to that issue, it was miss-handled and money wasted, by a past IP.

You now can amend to allow that without interference, as it is now you can use for club related biz.

I think it is closer to 20% but another 20% requested their emails not be listed because they are afraid of spam.

you mean by mail, I agree.

I don't see any difference in the Unit meeting, you have the Caucus to organize any members with streaming.

There is a Thor Motorhome Club specifically for those people who want to buy non-Airstream motorhomes from Thor. If you do not want an Airstream, buy one of those and move your membership over there. I think they even provide financial support to that organization as they have withdrawn support from WBCCI.
