My question is for WBCCI members who are MAL's...
i'm a mal and shall remain so until the wb' gets its act together, or i need the cash for fuel.
the other potential benefits beyond what you've stated are...
-reduced fee for staying in the a/s land yacht parks
, i think they still do this.
-some of the a/s parks sell lots/timeshares
and wb' membership is required for this too.
-and in theory u can attend any wb unit rally
, not just the national events.
in reality this (entry 2 unit/vac rallies) may not happen but it is supposed to.
-of course, mals continue to receive the monthly blue birdcage liner
and an annual membership directory
-the leadership still claims discounts are available in many rv parks (listed in the directory) but i've NEVER had the discount honored...
is listed in the directory as offered by other members.
yes it's cheaper to join the 4cu or wdcu, but neither is the completely NATIONAL/global unit which the club needs.
unit #000 (mal) is still the largest membership segment, with the most new members every month and every year.
IF the club cannot figure out how to serve this segment, it is doomed to get smaller and less relevant for 'streamers...
telling us to 'just join the blah, blah unit' is ignoring the primary issue and shows NO forward vision, or desire to retain this revenue segment.
