Rant

WBCCI used to be a great organization, just like the FORUM used to be a great place to share ideas with like minded individuals. However things are changing aren't they. I will never again pay to be a member of this FORUM or WBCCI. Why would anyone pay dues and have absolutely no say or vote. As you can see for your self they do not listen. Even when you ask them to go away they persist. We have good people here and there. However just not in charge.

Members of a forum never have a say. The owner of a forum and its mods make the decisions. That is just the way it is. I may disagree with what the mods do on occasion, but it is their jobs to do as they see fit. If I don't like their decisions then I can stop using the forums as entertainment and for info purposes. THIS IS GREAT THEATER. I love it!!!. jim

If you think the AirForums is bad then you never used the WBCCI forum. WOW, now that was fun.. AirForums is probably the best it can be as far as any other ones I have used. jim

I guess it's a crapshoot isn't it. Some people are lucky enough to stumble into a fantastic unit, like 4CU, or my unit, Cape Cod, and others not so lucky. When my friend Tye called to join his local area NY unit he was asked how old he was (44) and told it was an older group and not for him. That unit has disbanded. Tye who lives in Buffalo, NY is now PRESIDENT of the Cape Cod Unit. We also have members from Prince Edward Island and Columbus OH. It's sad that your local unit happend to be one of the not so nice ones,,,,,it probably won't be around in a year or two.
There's also "dry" units where your shunned if you have a happy hour Let me smell those coffee cups!

That kind of crack hurts my "original finish" feelings by making me feel inadequate, somehow.

Be thankful, they done you a favor by ignoring you! It wouldn't be enjoyable trying to hang aorund with people like that at the local rallies, you'd always be treated as an outsiders by pompass acting snobs.

It is possible the online info gets sent on to the local unit membership chair for action and there it dies, depending on the unit. The old chain of command thing that causes much of our troubles.
While this is speculation on my part, my experience with the JC office staff on the things they handle has always been excellent

As 4CU Unit Treasurer, I have received unit dues checks and copies of membership applications from HQ - folks that have used the online application or mailed their forms to Jackson Center. I enter them in my database and forward the information to our Membership Chair who sends out a welcome letter, adds them to the membership directory, etc.

Undoubtedly this is one of the things contributing to the success of your unit.
I suspect though that many units do not follow through when they receive this info from HQ. That is a possible explanation why so many complain nothing happens with their online applications
