There is a lot of focus on MALs numbers - but they are already members of the club - What is going on to bring in NEW members?
I am listening and again they come back to MALs - over and over again.... MALs are in the club already! Get new members!

Admittedly it is early but Linda Ames of youth program says she has only one child registered for the International so far. She says she usually ends up with 60 after 20 register but I wonder if the price of the rally is putting families off now to have one child registered. She said she knew of two or three others that are coming. She would like to take them to the buffalo farm and will ask region presidents to help promote the youth program in their regions.

There was one grievance from Mexico unit I think was said. The committee decided that slander was a legal matter and as such out of their jurisdiction and dismissed.

Sedalia Missouri will be the location of the 2012 International and will have three point hook-ups and a large air conditioned center for activities. There is a walking, biking, equestrian path that goes all the way to Saint Louis from there.

There was a comment made about last meeting's discussion over unit caravan recognition and how unneccessary that is and how caravan leaders don't lead for recognition and now that the caravan leaders' recognition dinner is coming up... he was just sayin' that seems a double standard.

Financially the WBCCI is doing well with a million dollars in assets, cash, it was reported.

It looks like the agenda has been updated and the seminar is expected to run into tomorrow. I think Wed. was originally scheduled as a free day.

I expect activity will get a lot "warmer" when they get to the 2020 and CBL revision reports

Entertainment for the DuQuoin Illinois International will be a Frank Sinatra sound alike vocalist, a bluegrass band and a special session of dolls organized by the first lady. Bring yours along.

I suppose there wasn't much said that I totally disagree with, but it has all been said before. When you take a look at the Blue Beret newsletters starting around 1990, you'll see that membership recruiting and retention has been an issue since then, and they said the same things then that they are saying now.

Especially the tics every second, sounds like it comes from an old vinyl record.

I hate to harp on it, but they need some new music.

Pun intended.

The other 2 or 3 would probably be her grandkids!

Apparently, it was only heard during Executive Session (private).

Well, I'm glad it is now recorded that the DENCO Unit motion will be sent out, but I have to admit that it was all a bit anticlimactic.
