Are we voting on the re-vised constitution from earlier this year? Didn't think we would be voting on anything unit wise until after IBT. I haven't heard anything lately other than the Denver motion which is making it rounds here in Texas right now.

Only 32 votes, 23 for 9 nay

That is a really poor response!

The lack of follow through on the part of the units' leadership is not good. By this time, you would think most units would have had activities with a quorum present so they could have taken a vote.

It's a little more complicated than "an activity having a quorum present"; our unit constitution requires that members receive advance notice. (And since our unit constitution is based on the WBCCI "model unit constitution" I imagine most other units' constitutions are similar.)

Having said that--and having received official notice of the motion after our spring 2011 business meeting--we publicized it in the newsletter and voted at the fall business meeting. (In favor--almost unanimously.)

Unfortunately, the lack of interest by unit presidents in presenting the amendment will be no different than the lack of interest in participating in an activist Delegates Meeting should the amendment pass. Which seems to be the weak link in an otherwise great idea.

Many units address Unit Elections and Business in the Fall and International Elections and Business in the Spring. It is possible that they will address it in the coming months.

I attribute the "lack of interest" more to the fact that since the introduction of the motion all units have gone through 2 or even 3 changes of officers. Emails sent to unit presidents when the motion was first being pushed are now past presidents. It is difficult to keep interest going from one administration to another. All the delays caused by the Constitution & Bylaws Committee Chairman, and then at the Mid-Winter IBT was all that was necessary for the motion to lose its momentum. Some current unit presidents might not have even seen the motion, because their immediate past president didn't pass it on them. This gets even more messed up when you consider that some units get new officers in July and others in January.

The DENCO Unit knew that could be a problem and had hoped to get the motion to the Unit Presidents by May or at least prior to International, but of course that never happened and all the drama that resulted didn't help either.

I agree, also the fact that you resigned, being the originator doesn't help matters.

So how can this get back on track?

How about an email after the holidays to all current unit presidents?

I've already suggested to the DENCO Unit and the Region 11 President that they should put a short article in The Blue Beret. It is theirs, not mine, to do with as they want.

Indeed, some of the "new" officers are really "old" officers recycled who like things just the way they are.

On the other hand some of the "new" officers are really "NEW" officers who DIS-like things just the way they are.

I received this motion several weeks ago and plan on circulating it to our members. Our next business meeting is in March 2012.

FYI to all WBCCI members reading about this amendment and especially those that may want to encourage a vote within their Unit. Your units voting results must be certified by your Unit President and received at WBCCI HQ by no later than May 20, 2012 in order to be counted. If this amendment will be discussed at a March or April 2012 Unit Business Meeting, you will have to work fast to get the results to WBCCI HQ by the required deadline.

If you are unsure if the amendment has been lost within your Unit, your current Unit President can contact WBCCI HQ for another copy of the amendment and instructions.

The entire amendment package except for the mail-in ratification form for the unit president to sign is also available at the URL below.

http://wisc.wbcci.net/files/2011/08/...ver-motion.pdf

(I also have the ratification form in .pdf form and will be glad to email it to any unit president that needs it--just PM me.)
