It would appear that the units which grew are intimate in numbers. Can any members of those units comment on how active they are? Being as small as they are, I would expect almost every member is regularly engaged in unit activities. Is that a correct hypothesis?

Mike, Thanks for the information. If I read this right our Oregon Unit 090 has the biggest increase in membership with 14 members. We had 17 new member so we had only 3 non-renewals. We are a FUN unit, Fun Rallies, we love to fly our flags ( sometimes a pirate flag sneaks in) Everyone wants a wool blue Beret. We don't take ourselves seriously. We do a lot of family fun things and our local dealers love us. We have a face book page, Oregon Airstream living, and we have a lot of fun with that. I guess that is why we have grown.

Your unit is doing very well considering the unit had a membership of 55 in 2005 and has grown to 104 in 2011.

Members at large (MAL's)

There are more MAL memberships than any single unit.It is also the group that has the most movement of members.Each year there are more joining and more leaving than any other unit.One thing I did notice last year was there were quite a few MAL's that joined regular units.

2010 MAL membership 463
2011 MAL membership 406

Working with the VAC, I am always encouraging MALs to join a unit - either 4CU or WDCU or other units like that - more for their money.

I usually encourage MAL's to visit local unit rallies in their area. Find one you like and you will get your money's worth for little additional cost of the local dues and you will get more weekend for your total membership costs. If you can not do local rallies, then Internet units are lower cost that remaining a MAL.

The NOVA Unit listed in post 5 is great for MAL's. All of our meetings are held online with no physical CG to care for.

Well, all in all - there is no reason that there should be a MAL - thre are too many fantastic units near enough to everyone to make the MAL class unnecessary.

I wonder how many MALs are repeating that status through the years. For such a large collective group, many must find it suitable and preferable for them to choose to be MALs. I have the honor of being signed to WBCCI's newest unit NOVA this year but I have been a MAL before and I would like to see that optional status continue for the future. It's possible that a non-MAL would have less bias towards it, while belonging to a unit and possibly also an intraclub; but it certainly seems to fill the bill for many others. Perhaps it is a matter of becoming unevenly yoked together that they wish to avoid. One reson for a number of MALs joining units may be the higher dues applied singularly towards MALs to discourage them from being MALs. I find the matter of a vote less imperative then I once considered it.

This year there may or may not be as many late sign ups to the WBCCI as in previous years. There is no way to know at this time.
