Hi Don,

As of the end of April there were 5,958 members of which 5,483 belonged to units and 475 were MALs.

Cheers,

Bob,

Is there anyway we can mark this date and time on a forums calendar?

So the range is 150-1000 not evenly distributed

There are several units WA-327, GA-316, ON-165 that have more members than some regions.

Another metric that would be interesting to show is a map with members per state.

.
I like the breakdown.

The question was about feedback from Region officers. I answered the question.

The Region membership is definitely out of balance. Under the current system, the GA Unit and the Washington Unit should each have Region representation!

Heck, yes. The Georgia Area can have their annual Area Rally at Top of Georgia Airstream Park and the Washington Area can have their Area Rally at Land Yacht Harbor, and most of the members won't have to travel at all to attend.

And all the members in the hypothetical Midwest Area, consisting of about 30 states and most of the Canadian provinces--covering 5 or 6 million square miles--can be content driving thousands of miles to their Area Rally. Or maybe switch to TAC.

Might the WBCCI be better off eliminating the travel requirements and reimbursement for Region presidents and leave the Region structure alone? Just a thought.

That is a great idea. Where is that requirement again?

I would hate to see a downsizing of our Region Rally. Meeting with folks from other Units is the best part!

If you want proportional representation on the IBT you need to equalize the Regions/areas populations. I have not seen when there has been a fight put up by the majority of the Region Presidents in opposition to the EC-7 initiatives. EC7 (+PIP's) rules the roost. So maybe it does not make any difference. For now, the self perpetuating Nominating Committee fully determines who is worthy of joining the EC7.

They should be announced tomorrow at the July 5th IBT Meeting which is 'live streamed' as that is when Barry Heckenswiler takes over as the new President.

Thank you both for the .pdf link and the reminder of the next simulcast tomorrow. Is there also such a thing as a master list of the 1st-3rd Region Presidents?

Then as long as I am asking, though this may be too far flung from the top, but how about unit and intraclub officers lists, are they available? And now I am going to be downright inquisitive and ask if there is a committee and volunteer list available and if there is any one who would care to approximate just how many WBCCI members may hold positions in any single given year? And if I am forgetting any chapter or branch of WBCCI please also point that out as well.

Foremost, I am interested in watching the upcoming region presidents and officers to watch for change within the club. Though it is impelling to consider just how many volunteers are helping run the club. As was stated by someone recently anyone can step up and volunteer. I almost think every member has and does, though not all would be titled and recognized. It is the recognized ratio to membership total that I would think extremely high. And while the spirit of volunteerism is both necessary and commendable, there is such a thing as too many cooks and in a small kitchen at one time to be effective.

At this point registration for the 2012 rally should be open.
Are we set for another all 30 amp $500 rally or are there any other options for 2012.
Any body at the rally have this info??

If you are willing to comb through it, most of that information is available in the annual WBCCI directory.

I would agree with you that the ratio of volunteers to members is quite high. I have long observed that most church committees seem to exist for the purpose of giving members something to do, and in some cases to confer a sense of importance to people who don't otherwise have any. I would say that the same tends to be true of WBCCI.

Now as to "too many cooks", that is not a problem because the vast majority are at the unit level and have no effect outside their own units.

The outstanding unit awards give credit for every committee person. The same person can be counted multiple times. Having plenty of committees is a leg up toward getting another gold streamer for the unit flag.

Let's see, I need a happy hour chairman, a board game chairman, a bean-bag baseball chairman, etc, etc. Ka-ching, Ka-ching!

That's right! This year I have appointed a special Alcoholic Beverage Committee in our unit and a Troublemaking Committee. That latter may give them a little heartburn. . .
