Per the "Model WBBCI Bylaws":

Regular Members of another Unit may become Affiliate members in this Unit by an application to the Membership Committee and upon acceptance shall possess all the rights and privileges of the Unit except:

• The right to hold office in the Unit.

• The right to vote in the selection or election of officers in the Unit, Region or Inter*national or on any amendment to the Unit or the International Constitution.

• The right to voteon the dissolution of the Unit, consolidation of the Unit with one or more units, or the merger of the Unit with another Unit. (1/19/07)

-----------------------

The intention of NOVA accepting affiliate members at this time is to provide an avenue for current WBCCI members to enjoy the benefits that NOVA will offer. Additionally, the affiliate applications will show the WBCCI leadership that NOVA has been accepted by the current members in the WBCCI community.

I welcome all current members to join in! I would love to see some more Ohio WBCCI members come aboard.

The Affiliate membership fee right now stands at $1. If you wish to send it to me, great. If not, I'll get it from you at the next campout!

From the Four Corners Unit (FCU), I wanted to wish you much luck and success with your new unit -

I started the FCU just as you are starting NOVA - I believe we are the most recent of admitted units to the WBCCI - so anything I can do to help you get going, please do not hesitate to PM me.

For us it was a bit of an uphill battle getting approved, so press on, don't get discouraged - I think this is what the WBCCI needs to grow and attract new members - we have over 100 members now and growing - we have attracted lots of folks who would never have joined the WBCCI and I think you will too - we can all talk about what the WBCCI needs to do and what we like and don't like, but the bottom line is folks like you who are willing to step up and grow the club...

Again, best of luck to you and all the charter members.

Ken J.

age

Larry and I are 61 and 60 respectively, and have sometimes been the oldest of the group that hangs out here in OH. (We are sometimes the last to leave the campfire and the last to get up in the morning too!) AGE has NOT made a difference!!! We welcome folks of all ages!!! We enjoy the "kids" and have had lots of fun with everyone. We look forward to meeting up with everyone down the road! Please join us!

Wayne & Linda,
I see your new to the forums. Welcome!

You will quickly learn that most everyone around here dismisses age. The only important thing is that you maintain your friendlyness by remaining young at heart.

Of course you are welcome to join NOVA!

I thought I was keeping up on these posts about NOVA. I must have missed one some place.

When did / Why did this age thing come up? Hey as long as you own an Airstream and can pay your dues you are in. (At least that is my understanding.)

The age thing must have been taken out of context from a joke about an OLD television show?

age

Or from all the comments about the "old" WBCCI members and their fading glory.

a suggestion for all involved in the [hopefully] new NOVA...

there's a chat room here at the forums, but that's only good for things like our meeting last Sunday.

I'd like to suggest that everyone download and use Yahoo Messenger and use it when online and willing to chat w/ NOVA and AS'ers. I think it would be a great way for the "digital unit" of NOVA to keep in touch with other NOVA members.

Hi Dan,
Were not new to the forums maybe not as active as some nor are we new to the WBCCI!
No foul intended but the most common complaint from people under 60 (read that as not retired) trying out the WBCCI, is that the membership of their local unit is too old, that they are not welcoming in any way and appear to be happy with being entertained and stationary. Which in turn sends the prospects away. Having contact with a vibrant group that shares the same interests is vital to growth of any organization.

Whether we like it or not age is a discriminator in the WBCCI simply because the needs of those who are retired conflicts with those who are not! This will not go away, but a move to unite those who are comfortable with the information age and its tools, will certainly be a welcomed addition to the options!

Hello:
I am new to these forums. I have a few questions for the people who may be starting this NOVA. Here they are...

1- How long have you been a members of the WBCCI?


2- Did you , or do you belong to a Unit? what was the reason for breaking away and starting a new unit?


3- What are the benefits that are spoken here of NOVA as opposed to other already established Units?

These are a few questions, I would like to know. Before I consider throwing my money to someone that I have never met, or anyone over the internet.

It is always easy for everyone to chime in, I am sure the intentions are good. But I would like to discuss this with who is starting it... From what I see Loudruff. I am older, but young at heart. The WBCCI has been that for me. I have never noticed an age issue with the WBCCI. I dropped out for a bit, but am rejoining.

Willy

Hi Willy,

Welcome to the forums!

My name is Dan Bihary, I'm spearheading the effort to organize NOVA. Thanks for the questions. Please allow me to answer them inline:


1- How long have you been a members of the WBCCI?

ANSWER: To date we have 10 new members of the WBCCI, 1 transfer, and 14 affiliate members of the WBCCI applying for membership in NOVA


2- Did you , or do you belong to a Unit? what was the reason for breaking away and starting a new unit?

ANSWER: I do not belong to the WBCCI. I have camped, caravanned, and participated with several WBCCI members in various units around the Ohio area. NOVA is being formed take advantage of technologies enabling daily online interaction.

3- What are the benefits that are spoken here of NOVA as opposed to other already established Units?

ANSWER: Every WBCCI unit offers a unique personality. I would invite you to investigate where you may fit best.

Please visit Home - NOVA for a full description of what NOVA is about.


These are a few questions, I would like to know. Before I consider throwing my money to someone that I have never met, or anyone over the internet.

ANSWER: It is important that all understand that nobody except the WBCCI headquarters will accept any funds. I am collecting information and applicants may choose to either mail me a check made out to the WBCCI or wait for a call from them for credit card info.

--------------------

Again, welcome to the forums! I invite you to come aboard with NOVA and be part of a new adventure. We are all about having fun!

I appreciate the fast answeres. I am intrested in the WBCCI again in general, and If I under stand it right, you are not a member... How can a person start a unit in a club they are not members of ???

I will check out the home page, as I go threw this Airforums website, I see alot of complaining about the WBCCI. 1 lady is quiting because of something that she said happened although not in the WBCCI or this chat forums. I am confused.

1- more question... I see this is a virtual unit? is that just the name, or is this all internet based? I want to camp like I used to when I belonged before, I am not planning to spend anytime on the internet in doors, but would rather be camping.

When I see Virtual, I think of that one Sylvester Stallone movie, when he was frozen and then brougth back to hunt a killer, and he put on this head gear for there version of sex... I can say I am not intrested in that. Although it may come to that if gas prices keep going up...

Very good cooperation is being maintained by myself and the Regional President. We are doing our best to form a new unit that fills the needs of what may be considered a non-traditional member.

I can assure you that "virtual" is not science fiction! The concept of NOVA will be to use the internet as much as possible for communications, meetings, an general organizations. But, it will in no way replace camping! NOVA will have rallies and other activities. We already have two on the calendar for next year.

I see you have a new, very nice, trailer! May I ask what unit you used to belong to and how long ago?
