Paul, what if your wrong?

What happened in the past is the past.

The current and up coming IP's insist they want to make this happen.

Paul what you (and or the other naysayers) never did was come up with better mouse trap.

Metro had the courage to take the lead and work with the club one final time.

If these bylaws don't fly I believe there will be a mass exodus.

Everyone waited years for change, now we'll have an indication of where this is headed at the Mid-winters.

So rather than trash talk which will have no positive effect, wait 5 months to see how it shakes out.

What at this point to have to lose?

Someone help me out here. If it is true that the IP wants to be an agent of change and conciliation, then why designate one seat on what seems to be an obscure committee to facilitate the change? For that matter why not make official announcement and seek input from the disaffected portion of the membership- or maybe a statement of what changes the WBCCI should be contemplating? Why not have a Task Force with the express purpose of bringing actionable changes to the membership at the 2011 International? If both sides are committed to 'making this happen' why isn't all this happening? I hate to be a nay-sayer, and I really do want to see changes, on the other hand if change is in the air, why is it impossible to detect from the WBCCI side? Color me jaded.

They have the power

Actually Bob,

I did submit a better mouse trap a few years ago to everyone that was on the IBT/EC7 down to the 2nd VP level within each Region at that time (2007), of which, many of those members are currently serving within the different levels of the IBT/EC7 today and the different committees and the email sent to everyone of them could be pulled out at anytime, the changes made before the mid-winter IBT “AND” in time for the WBCCI membership drive.

All the changes that need to be made can be done to the By-Laws, by the IBT/EC7 without any committee, membership vote, etc… “ONLY” a constitution change needs the full vote of the WBCCI in order to make a change to it. The “By-Laws” can be changed by the IBT/EC7 at “anytime” under their existing power. They know what needs to be done many of the members have been screaming for it for over 5 years.

The IBT/EC7 could make the changes to the By-Laws (since they have that power) before the winter IBT if they wanted too or show the new By-Laws on the WBCCI website (for everyone that is not allowed to logon to the forums site) or the WBCCI forums (for those that can logon and post) for feedback by middle of Nov.. Print out the new By-Laws for review at the mid-winter IBT, getting them out to the units by spring for final feed back and make changes putting them into effect at the International rally next year by the new “kindler and gentler IBT/EC7”.

All it takes is for the IBT/EC7 to wish it done and it can gets done. If they don’t it never will.

Rodney, it is not 1 seat that's wants change all 5 do.

I reached out to this entire community for their input, it quickly turned toxic. see this thread

Its hard to have meaningful input in that environment, so I asked for PM's or email Defendwally@gmail.com.

I have received 8 solid well thought out suggestions, to date

This committee is the closest thing you'll see to a task force.

We aren't waiting until the international in June it will be presented at the Jan midwinter.

Bob,

Five seats want change, but what does the leadership want? My reading of the report of the July 5 meeting in the latest Blue Beret did not find any information on this committee.

PMs and private emails are fine, but there are many members here who want to know what is proposed and taking the discussion offline prevents this and makes me think of cigar smoke filled rooms.

Too bad that you did not notice that most threads about the WBCCI turn toxic.

Has your access to the WBCCI forum been reinstated and have you heard from Norm Beu about it?

Bill

I'll be happy to talk to you.

Exactly my point. Might I suggest that the backroom dealing is a prime contributor to toxic threads. In any case, last time I checked this is not a WBCCI venue. Why hasn't the WBCCI stepped forward in an official venue and make an official announcement?

At this point Bob, all I see are the statements you are making without any sort of verification whatsoever. I don't know you and I will not speculate on your motives or aspirations. Having said that, as far as I can see there has been zero confirmation from the IBT that some reform process is underway.

Major changes should not, in my opinion, be decided in a back-room meeting and enacted at a winter meeting. There needs to be an open process that is decided on by the larger community. If insisting on this makes my commentary toxic, then call me toxic.

What a mess of it this has made for the issue of Leo's reinstatement, the defense team and now even Save Wally closing down with the last posts calling individuals out as bipolar idiots. What a shame, it all crumbled, so much time and effort and all the good went right down with the bad.

Rodney you sure had it pegged. Who would have thought it was fabrication?? Live and learn. It sure sorted out the chaff from the wheat.

So you didn't see the thread for suggested changes?

No back room, it can't be in your face anymore!

Open to the entire community

You know its really interesting sooo many have been complaining about this and that which wrong and need to be changed.

So based on the (limited to say the least) input to date all the complaining must be unfounded.

we have 6,000 happy members that are satisfied with the status quo.

Look who just became IBT with his appointment to the Executive Committee's committee's chair. Who was that Defend Wally leader anyway??

I really don't think there are 6000 happy members. There is a large silent majority who pay no attention to these things,However there is also a fair number who don't see another committee addressing the bylaws as much of a solution. It can address some of the problems, but not all and if the first we hear of what they are doing is at midwinters things will move at the usual snails pace, if at all. ( ex. 2020 committee) If there were interim progress reports, agendas, or what have you I would feel better about the whole thing. After all, there are supposed to be all those "go to meeting" meetings going on.

I have considered putting together some ideas and sending them to Dona but feel I need to see how some other things shake out first.
None of this is going to get Leo back in, and keep him in (along with any others who may be targeted by grievances in the future)
It probably also would not address the wbcci web site mess that continues as I write this.

Surely you realize, Bob, that your own statements/actions/representations in all this mess are going to affect people's willingness to trust you to advocate for them on this committee.

I think you should step down.
