These membership numbers are the official numbers used by the WBCCI every year. It's determined by the voting strength of each unit as of June 1st of each year.
I just double checked and see that the Region 6 total is missing. I'll add that before the day is out...
Thanks for providing that Leo.The directory totals would be different and usually lower than the totals that are'official' on June 1st of each year because of non renewals.
The cutoff time to get in the directory is November.This years official directory number was 6112.The official membership in Mid January/09 was 6278.By June of this year when the 'official' membership number is taken it should be around 6600 if new memberships follow their historic amounts.
Let's just go with the numbers you have as they are much less of a headache for me trying to defend the info printed in the 'official'membership directory.
I think this will be the last year for me to create these yearly WBCCI membership threads.Anyone interested in future years can pm me and I will provide what I have found.
