Thanks Dan,

The point that was confusing me was that I had read in the various posts about possible approval the charter in July and my interpretation was that it meant nothing was certain until then, and that membership in WBCCI via NOVA would not be a fact until that time.

Are you saying that it is anticipated that those such as me who are not presently members of WBCCI who submitted applications to join NOVA would in fact become members of WBCCI as January?

I guess it is no big deal either way, just trying to be sure I understand!

We will be heading South for a month or so early in the New Year and may try to stop in at a couple of Airstream parks in Florida, space permitting. It may be that membership is not required at these parks anyway.

Thanks again ................... Brian.

You, as well as all the other applicants, will be WBCCI members as soon as the office processes the applications.

I wish I was going to Florida with you!

Most if not all "Airstream Parks" are in deed that...an Airstream park, not a WBCCI park. We've stayed at 2 Airstream Parks thus far in our travels and while we are WBCCI members, it was not required to stay. All that's required it that your trailer was made by Airstream. You'll find in the park that there's a mixture of trailers with and without red numbers. Nevertheless, call ahead to make sure they don't require WBCCI. But, the telling them that you WBCCI application is pending with NOVA might help!

Perhaps the President could appoint the administrator?
Sunday night is cool by me, just set a time and get it out there so we can plan to be online at that time.

So we must have min. 3 officers. Hmmm, I'd say that the "Pres." could also be the "Admin" as described in the constitution. I guess we need two additional positions beyond that. Perhaps Sunday's chat would be a good time for those interested in such a position to throw their name in the hat.

Was the first meeting the chat at Air Forums? I think e-mail alerts would be a great way to announce events. I have not had a personal response to applying for membership but assume the generic is a fit for most?

How long will it take to get a charter approved and do you have plans to keep the group together whether a charter is granted or not?

I think the internet group could start to meet regularly somewhere, perhaps a Yahoo e-mail list, and start forging relationships and sharing ideas and fellowship. I have not seen what members have requested membership on the official site as yet. Could that information be shared online?

I had posted this here before and there was no response but I'll suggest it again...at least two of us here use Yahoo Messenger to communicate / chat online. If everyone involved in NOVA downloaded this and turned it on anytime they are willing to chat then we would always know who's online. Since NOVA is to be internet based, I think this would be a good idea.

Folks,

Sorry for not keeping everything pushing forward. There are two reasons for that. First, Christmas time! I trust no explanation is needed here. Second, I chose to let NOVA lay low during the past several days of WBCCI debate. The sidelines were a good place to be.

This Sunday around 8, I invite anyone to meet in the chat room to discuss whatever is on your mind.

We do have several developments including the creation of a private forum to use as we see fit.


"Was the first meeting the chat at Air Forums?" ------Yes.

"I think e-mail alerts would be a great way to announce events." -----Announcements will be made via email and posts through Airforums.

"I have not had a personal response to applying for membership but assume the generic is a fit for most?" ------I'm sorry for that! I tried to respond personally to each form, but got backed up. I will soon be assembling a complete roster and a bulk confirmation email will go out. If I miss anybody, I promise to make it right!

"How long will it take to get a charter approved" ------The regional President can issue are Provisional Charter at any time after HQ confirms the members. This won't happen until after mid-winters.

"....do you have plans to keep the group together whether a charter is granted or not?" ------- That decision will be made by the members, but I would guess the answer is yes.

"I think the internet group could start to meet regularly somewhere, perhaps a Yahoo e-mail list, and start forging relationships and sharing ideas and fellowship. I have not seen what members have requested membership on the official site as yet. Could that information be shared online?" ----- Andy R. has set us up with a private area here on AirForums. It will be the decision of the club, but I suspect we will employ Airforums as much as possible. It has proven reliable and well moderated. Additionally, the web site will be used to share information and accept registrations and other fun stuff.

On a personal note, I work for a great architectural firm in Lorain. I'm responsible for the creation of major construction documents for large projects as well as keeping all of our computer systems, software, and data intack. Every now and then that means 100 hour weeks! Well, this isn't that bad right now, but getting close. So, I'm trying to get the critical stuff done and some of the other stuff may be slipping. I'll be looking for some help soon, so maybe you can think about it for Sunday.

Go Buckeyes!

Wow great responses. My only deal with live time chat is a matter of a time conflict of obligations. I am hoping an e-mail list of sorts with a window of a number of hours over several days to review and reply will eventually evolve. If on demand is popular then so be it but I prefer a time span to stay onboard rather than miss finite opportunities. There also seems to be an inherent difference in the communication of a post and a chat reply as to the continuity of the subject matter. Or is that just my impression?

I am also hoping we can collaberate on a NOVA rally as members together after the first two scheduled rallies have been held.

As it stands those that are signing up are doing so on the baisis of not knowing who is signing up and without the benefit of getting to know one another. As you have mentioned, Dan, there is a lot of opinion circulating about the WBCCI right now and I think it would be a definite plus to add the addition of personalities and friendship onto the premise of this new internet unit. I think we could all agree that a few gregarious sorts can add much interest and many converts. So to be proactive we may need to get busier and more personally involved! It's internet we can move quickly.

So true. The beauty and attractiveness of NOVA.

Dan,

For some of us who are new to the AS Forum (like my wife and I) we did not even see your post until today (1/1/10). May I suggest that you extend your window to join this group until the end of Jan, 2010. This would give time for all to read your proposal. Also, can members of local or regional AS clubs be members of the NOVA club? Can one be a member of NOVA and the local AS clud?
Thanks,
jjairstream@gmail.com

cohort? I am an affiliate, or at least that's what WBCCI likes to call it. I owe DanB $1 next time I see him. If this would have been started 1 year ago I likely would have been a charter member. However, I am WDCU since NOVA didn't exist then.

I'm always one to incite discussion. Discussion is healthy. I will push a topic even if I don't agree with it just to get people to discuss the pros and cons.

In these times where the topic of dislike for various parts of the WBCCI is often raised, I think it's great that NOVA is being created. 10 years from now I hope that many units of the WBCCI consolidate or otherwise copy the precedent that is set by NOVA. I think we all see the right steps that the WBCCI needs to pursue, it's just a matter of who wants to progress toward where and how fast. I think that the way people talk on the AirForums right now about WDCU, 4CU, NEU, Detroit Metro, and similar others will be the way that people talk 5-10 years from now about NOVA and similar units that follow the way and maybe improve ??? on the way NOVA is/was created.

-Jason
