Members at large

Members at large (MAL's) are members who do not belong to a specific unit. They are designated with a (000) in the directory.

The MAL number has been shrinking since 2008 when there were 548. In this years directory, there are 337.

In the past, MAL renewals in the club were lower than those that joined a unit. It seems that there is a lower percentage of MAL's joining each year and a higher percentage of new members are joining a unit instead.

Unit breakdown

For the first year since I have been tracking unit membership strength there have been more units with a gain in membership than units that lost members.

In the past, there may have been up to 176 units operating. Since that time there has been a reduction approx. 60 or so units bringing us to the 2014 Directory total of 116 units. This would contribute, in part, to some of the remaining units gaining members. The other obvious factor is the amount of new members joining.

54 units showed a gain in membership
45 units had a reduction
15 units remained unchanged.

Remember , these are unofficial numbers.

This years movers and shakers

There are some units that have showed a nice gain in membership last year. Doing this every year, most of the units listed here are not unexpected as they have been gaining members at a regular basis and seem to have really healthy and vibrant units. That is my personal opinion only. Here are the units with a membership gain of 10 or more since the 2013 Directory.

Unit 004 - Four Corners Unit of New Mexico 114/2014 104/2013
Unit 009 - Heart of Texas Camping 71/2014 51/2013
Unit 011 - Northern California 95/2014 80/2013
Unit 024 - Denver Colorado 140/2014 120/2013
Unit 064 - New England 107/2014 83/2013
Unit 090 - Oregon 149/2014 127/2013
Unit 103 - Texas Gulf Coast 78/2014 67/2013

Here's a question from the Peanut Gallery… What is the smallest Unit that experienced growth at all? Even one more member rather than ten more? I'm wondering if there's a point of diminishing returns, where a unit that's "too small" just doesn't have the resources— or possibly doesn't have the appeal— to successfully recruit new members faster than they lose old members.

Nice work indeed.

I wonder what the grand total of red numbers ever handed out/applied for is? Even the recycled ones.

Not expecting an answer just a wonder.

A while ago, Lynn was asking about attracting new members. Is there a way to reach out to the new members of these units and find out how they came to join? Who shared information with them? Who invited them? What kind of materials were they aware of? What attracted them? Why now?

I joined before even getting possession of the first trailer because I thought it was expected. I thought it was necessary to have the membership number to even be able to signup for the forum. I asked Debbie to send the numbers to the dealership and they were installed before I picked the unit up.

My wife was not keen on the numbers when she saw them on the first trailer, so I will mount them on Plexiglass with suction cups for the new trailer so they will be in place on the front and rear windows when parked at an activity.

I elected to acquire a Life membership to help keep the WBCCI afloat financially.

I understand that up to 50% of the new members joined online.

Maybe an officer in the club or someone involved in membership could answer your questions for you. I know some on this forum who have probably been following this thread who could shed some light on them.
