WDCU status

The 2008/2009 numbers are out. In them, it shows WDCU lost 44 members. As unit President, I have the list and I can verify that it's not accurate. I'm researching the "why" and "how" this happened (our members that I know renewed but did not make it into the Directory), but I can easily say that we did not lose that many. Many on the list are long time WDCU members, former WDCU Presidents, who are still a part of the WDCU and most likely, always will be!

But, you will see the WDCU members drop, but for good cause. Before the FCU was approved, many current FCU members joined the WDCU to have a vote - and now that FCU is alive and growing, the WDCU numbers appear the opposite - but that was an expected drop in numbers. This is my hypothesis but I have to prove it.

I'm providing my list of 44 non renewers to the FCU President so that we can validate the numbers... Numbers or data taken out of context can do harm - as my degree in Operations Research has proved - so I'm posting this to keep these numbers in context with possible reasons so that people don't use the data in the wrong way.

The WDCU is alive and well!

Rob

Would it be possible for U to get me the stats for Region 4 Cincinnati Unit. I have a curiosity about this unit. Seeing its in the backyard of the National Office. Appreciate seeing the stats U have posted. Its a shame the head-honchos cant see the handwriting on the wall and lower dues and drop Rally fees and put on a big push to gain members. Looks like by the numbers WBCCI is slowly BLEEDING TO DEATH . I really hate to see that happen given the history of the club.
Pm me with the results if ya like.
Thanks
Roger

An update from the Ontario Canada Unit (124)

Just thought I would let you know that we now stand at 191 members! We only had 14 members not renew this year for a number of reasons (death, sold their Airstreams and bought a SOB (we call them traitors!), etc.)

Thanks for all the hard work - I wonder why Jackson Center doesn't provide this information in the Blue Beret - probably too embarassed!

Take care

Hey! We're gaining so many members we have to chase them away Well, not really, but we are attracting a GREAT bunch of folks! We informally inducted two couples at our rally held earlier in San Luis Obispo; another couple who joined us for dinner only signed up; and we've gotten interest from folks outside 'our area'. WOW! In addition, we went through the International process and actually changed our name and logo to something more fitting to our area...Tri-County California Unit is now the CENTRAL COAST CALIFORNIA UNIT which encompasses San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Join us for a rally when you're in the neighborhood! www.CentralCoastAirstream.org

Streamer23: So that we're on the same page, what constitutes a member? Does one membership = one trailer? one membership w/wbcci? We have one membership, two '54 Flying Clouds, and we're two people. Does this equal one membership?

One person or a couple = 1 member regardless of the number of Airstreams you own.

If you have these figures ..could you share?
Between 2006 and 2009,
how many WBCCI members were lost due to death, year by year?
Did you get a chance to contact Home Office regarding your question?
