It's NOT over yet!

The vote that took place at the Winter IBT Meeting is just to put the motion in front of the membership for approval!


If more than 1/3 of the membership reject the motion at the International Rally in June, it will not pass....and will NOT go into effect. Get out & vote through your Unit & Delegates...it's not over until it's over! The fat lady has not begun to sing...she may be warming up though if we don't band together to keep the WBCCI alive.

There are many more trailer owners in the club than motorhomes...we CAN beat this!

Yes, if my club goes the way the IBT wants us to, we will retain some members. (Mostly just IBT members.) We will also gain some new members as well. But my club will lose this member for one if it passes and I'm guessing I won't be alone either. If it does pass, I will accept the fact that I was clearly in the minority and go and join Rick's Airstream Club. But before I go, I will let my voice be heard and do whatever I can to help the WBCCI. Won't you join me?
Don- Too bad you and I don't get to vote! Yes, it would be cool to have a real AS club but the powers who control the name would never allow it but it is fun thinking about it. As mentioned here and the other thread the best we can do is to get individuals with the right mind set in office. Every unit should be working on its regional officers and deligates. How did Lincoln become President of the United States? He made sure that anyone who would vote for him voted! Lets start from the bottom and get up there to where real work can be done.

Oh, I'll be voting Rick!
What should really happen is that for this amendment to the Constitution to PASS it should be approved by 2/3 majority. How did the membership in the first place let THAT one go?!? It's exactly upside down!

See post #17 above

I don't think so...

66+% MUST VOTE YES for it to pass

Less than that and it remains staus quo. It MUST pass by 2/3's of the membership.

The point is the same...the tense was changed, sorry for the confusion.

Leo, can you remind us of the voting procedure? Doesn't each Unit get one vote yes or no - and all of the members in that Unit are counted as a vote?

In other words, my Unit - the Watchung Unit has let's say - fifty members. In our Unit vote, 26 members vote to allow the the SOB's into the club and 24 are against it - my Unit will cast 50 votes to allow SOBs at the delegates meeting at International. Do I have this right?

Voting will be done at the unit level. From there a delegate will be sent to the International rally to cast the final vote.

Delegates for each unit will be instructed on how to vote on behalf of their members. Some units will cast all of it's votes for or against. Some will cast a number for or against. It all depends on how the delegate is instructed to vote.

Why would two separate Airstream clubs be out of the question. There are two separate Ford Thunderbird Clubs and three separate Model A Ford Clubs, all of which use the Ford name. Why couldn't a Classic Airstream Club be created. By "classic", I don't mean only vintage travel trailers, I mean all twinkie-shaped Airstream travel trailers of any vintage. In other words, a club for the trailers that represent the classic airstream design.

Classic Airsteam Club is already an Intra Club along with Amateur Radio Club, CB Radio Club, Free Wheelers Club, Full Timers Club, Genealogy Club, The Computer Club, and the Vintage Airstream Club.

OK then, call it the Airstream Trailer Club or possibly, the Traditional Airstream Club.

Brian-
As much as I would love to start the Airstream Club of America, anyone who would want to do so would have to obtain a license to use the name AIRSTREAM. Till there is no pulse left at WBCII and they are close, our best course is to get like minded people in office!

Go for it. The motorhome owners won't miss you a bit.

There has been a lot of chatter about A/S trailers. My impression is that true A/S MOHOs would be included. This is all about rebadging SOB MOHOs and calling them A/S. My impression also is that this whole "new club" idea is very tongue-in-cheek.
