That's great you bring in all the Ohioans you can and some Michiganians have signed up for the associate status, now let's hope we get MALs and others from all over the world to join the first proposed internet unit of the WBCCI.

Dan,


Signed up today as a new member - I hope this flies!

I like the idea, and while I have nothing against the more traditional units, I think this will suit me better!

Presume we will be contacted early in teh new year to pay the piper if all is a "go."

I think Dan has emailed the Ohio MALs. Are you talking to any of the other Michigan folks?

All the WBCCI people that I know from Michigan already have a unit and are in the Metro Detroit unit and many of the forum members are being recruited to that unit as well. I am looking for another unit and hoping to add onto the group of people that I already know, with people that I do not know yet.

I may have been mistaken about the virtual unit, whether it is a local Ohio unit, or a global internet unit. It is the wider internet unit that I was interested in as a former MAL and what is motivating me to sign up. Do you have the web page link?

virtual unit

A truly internet virtual unit would be webwide I would think. Sounds just like what we need. That would be way more active! Dan has set up a webpage for NOVA. The link is: Home - NOVA
Carol, I hope you will sign up!

Thanks Lou!!

This unit will be dedicated to respecting the traditions of the WBCCI, along with using the latest technologies to allow for Airstreamers to have fun!

Under consideration is the creation of a new virtual WBCCI unit. As required, this unit will be based geographically in Northern Ohio. In practice, membership in this virtual unit will be boundless. The intended purpose for this arrangement is to provide a solid “home” to non-traditional members.
That sounds like just the ticket for me. Give me boundless non-traditional members.

So in practice I would probably try to recruit from a wider area than the geographical base and not compete for members from the traditional local units.

Could we put "earth" in as the "location" instead of Ohio? Seems to fit the location of an internet based chapter better. I know... I know... Wbcci rules thing. Just pushing the bump up hill with an idea.

Ditto! If this is truly a unit that is nation wide than what difference does it make if location is virtual like the club.

I am still trying to figure out the advantage of NOVA.

I dont know about this NOVA...

In the IBT bylaws for the WBCCI it states that first you have to petition the region president, then he has to see if there is a need or a demand. Honestly I dont think there is. There are many active Units in Ohio. People who just want to camp, and actually do.

Then if by chance you get the region 4 presidents approval, then you have to hold meetings for bylaws, and petition the international. These have to be in sync with INTL Bylaws. And in the end, there is 1 more unit created in Ohio.

The MAL membership, I never quite understood. It is less expensive to be a member of a unit, second you get perks with unit membership, but I guess that is why you want to create one. I think it wont get the approval of the international, but if it does, you have to follow the bylaws anyways. That is the reason many people dont join.

All I am syaing is, it is a circle. I belong to the WBCCI, I am in a unit, and we do alot of camping, travel, white water rafting, and so much more. Well planned events. I really have ne reason to join something vitual, when I can actually do it.

I wanted to offer up this info for your planning purpose,

The current number of MAL in Northern Ohio is 3....

This may be getting reduced today...

Most people belong to a unit for the very reasosons you are wanting to start this one...

I did not realize, but last night I forwarded this info to friends of mine, (maybe they might be intrested) not realizing 1 is this regions membership chairmen. He is checking, with the President, but as of this point no one new of this new unit trying to Form.

Hope this helps

That is not correct. I have talked to the Region 4 President about this proposed new Unit, as has DanB. The Region 4 President is supportive of this idea, at least in concept. I do think that some of the ByLaws changes DanB is proposing may generate debate, but the concept of a new unit I do not expect to become a stumbling block.

Remember that this new Unit (NOVA) is not being created to take anything away from existing Units that are hopefully very satisfying for all of their current members. It is about providing an opportunity for a different WBCCI experience in the hope of attracting new WBCCI members or retaining current members (MAL or from other Units) that are disenchanted and may not renew.

Regarding this thought, if you visit the NOVA web site, DanB is already starting plaining for Rallies next year. This unit will still be about getting together in person and doing things, just not doing so to handle club business. DanB has already proven he can do this as he organized the very successful "Airstreams in the Wilds" event this past September. More than half the attendees at that rally were already WBCCI members, just not the organizer (DanB).

rallying

DanB and a bunch of forums members have been camping around OH, MI and PA together this past several years. We have been active and having fun!! It is all about the camping!!!! We just think that meetings and business does not have to be part of the camping experience. Besides the potlucks and campfires take up too much time. NOVA offers the opportunity for all of us to participate from a wider geographic area in the business end without having to travel miles and miles for meetings. Instead we travel for pleasurable camping and plan our meeting business online. Perfect!
