New constitution to be brought to vote after 10 min. recess.
This may cost some votes as I THINK some units won't vote for it without the delegates
meeting amendment.. Hopefully they will vote yes and amend later

Just to recap this is the vote for sudden death of the delegate system. If passed the meeting is immediately adjourned and there will be no more delegates and further business will not take place as formerly conducted or previously scheduled and meetings will be determined by Ohio.

I for one appreciate all of the work all of those who crafted the replacement constitution did. I know it represented many hours for a lot of people. Thank you for your effort. I will now pray/hope for a Phoenix to rise from the ashes.

I totally agree with Aviator.
I did not expect such a crushing defeat.
Possibly the elimination of the delegates meeting is a big factor.

At first I was in favor of a direct vote count, however after seeing what it takes to get unit members to vote I now better understand the need for a delegates meeting and proportional voting.

I don't believe you could ever get a 2/3rd majority of the membership if you had to count on every member to vote.

We will now continue to conduct club business at a pace that makes the U.S. government look like blinding efficiency

The delegates can still bring much of that work forward. United delegates can make a difference. Disbanded individuals would have no way to bring that concerted effort. Delegates voted down the name change and the SOB motorhome amendment. If left to the individuals who are in attendance at the meetings to vote, guess where the balance of power would be?!

There are 40,000 Airstreamers right here on this forum that are not members. If membership is in question market to those people.

As for FMC losing 6,000 members that is a drop in the bucket considering their membership numbers go well into the 100 thousands. In case you have not read the papers many people have lost their jobs and a general economic down turn can more than account for that loss.
I agree with you Howie,

I'm not a member yet, but I've been thinking about joing next week when my packet to join arrives from Jackson Center.
One thing I think is missing from the whole program is some sort of relationship of Airstream company and the club.
For instance, it would be a nice plus, to belong to the club, if club members were offered discounts at the JC service center and parts department. Lets say a 10% across the board, all day everyday.
Everyone likes to save money!


IMHO, that would be a big draw and help increase membership of Airstream owners who are not members.
The potential is there, why not tap into it?

Representative democracy continues

Someone made the motion to "call for the vote" without allowing for discussion or amendments. It was a take it or leave it vote. Without the amendments that would have allowed for the continuation of the delegate voting, the great majority of members would not accept the new constitution. The work of the revision committee was rejected. If they still want to pursue MAL voting, they can do it as an amendment to the current constitution. They can also add electronic meetings.
