[quote=Pam]Change has been tremendous in our Unit and it is enjoyable in the extreme right now.[quote]

So true, I'm exhausted from all the fun we've had with the NEU this year.

It all goes back to the local unit you belong to.

Too many are focused on what the IBT says and does, they don't really control your local unit you do!

I agree. It's all about your local club and caravaning.

Is the WBCCI already dead in some units?

I wonder if anyone in WBCCI monitors units for activity? In particular I watch my old Metro Detroit unit. I have just received the April newsletter and see there are no rallies planned yet for this year. Not sure when their last rally was July or early fall? If you notice in the Blue Berets or online at WBCCI or the index you see the only info seems to be a standard TBA and that is for all the luncheons and meetings. It's a shame that units are out there particularly units throughout Region 4 that just flail along side of their activity driven counterparts. This was the active unit of the three in Michigan Mid Eastern plans only one rally each fall in someones orchard. What's the solution? The way I reason is if they who are interested and have been members for years and have the acceptance and support of one another cannot turn the tide how would a new member "step up to the plate and change it" if they could not. Gosh I have grown to disdain that simplistic retort. It's on a par with the wisdom that spawned "if the people have no bread then let them eat cake!" If good intentions and hard work is all it takes then why couldn't even Lot find 10 other people?

Is the WBCCI dead in some units?

Short answer...yes.The club seems to lose units every year and to be honest I don't see this changing in the near future under the present circumstances.
Lots of new members join each year(roughly 1000)which now translates to around 15% and yet the membership continues to decline.What's the answer?
It is so depressing reading all the WBCCI threads on this forum.How do you change and improve when it seems many of the leaders are stuck in the past.An osterich comes to mind or even Nero playing an instrument while Rome burned.
Survey after survey and little action.I don't have the answer.
There are several units that are achieving success so it CAN be done but they are few and far between.At least the 2020 survey team is supposed to be studying these units but what will be done with the results?
There are so many great and talented folks in the club who seem to have the right idea.I hope the club is still around by the time they work themselves up through the ranks.

The answer is have more unit run like the 4CU.Go camping,have fun and .
No meetings,no luncheons, no tux.Just happy hour and pot luck dinners around the camp fire.
Look at the numbers that we have at our rallies.Even the spur of the moment one at Quartzsite AZ had a good turn out.
The 4CU even likes our squarestream.This is why we joind the WBCCI and the 4CU.
GOOD folks,GOOD times with GOOD friends. Come join us
