Email Cindy Reed (Manager) and Don McKelvey (Membership chair), to let them know about your lack of response and let us know what happens.

I think that Don is on this forum.

This sounds like my experience in joining a Unit. I attempted to contact both my geographically-local Unit and a "virtual" Unit. I tried 3 times to get in touch with the supposed membership coordinator at the local unit, from 2 different email addresses (thinking one email domain might be filtered into spam or something.) I never heard a peep, I guess they have more members than they want, or turn their noses up at old Argosies.

The virtual Unit, on the other hand, has been responsive and inclusive and now I'm a member. I guess I should be happy the local one ignored me, I might not have found the right one.

Well it comes out now. I also asked to join two different UNITS. Turned down by one and no response from the other,this was several years ago and I now will never join WBCCI. They dont want people who voice thier opinion anyway, they just kick ya out.

uh huh...so what do you do if ya want to interact with other AS folks who are just folks? Hang out in the forum forever? Da wife and I have discussed this several times and just don't want to be caught up in another....what do I say?....selective rule oriented organization like at work? NO!...we just want to meet folks who love the roaming lifestyle and appreciate the equipment. Not for the cost or the display, but the recognition of, with the proper care and feeding, our AS'es will be the last RV we need...the heritage...the nostalgia.

Are there groups like that?

Come to our local rally at Amboy, IL in October. I am sure you will not be disappointed. We invite new members and are a fun group with a active schedule of activities. I sent you a personal invitation via email. Check out our website at Northern Illinois

U ask what we do. We hang out a few times a year with friends we have made at Forums rallys/get togethers and there is no pressure to join anything. We camp with everyone no matter what thier affiliation is. IT really dont matter if we make friends with campers in a tent,we just want to camp and enjoy ourselves. NOW having AIR STREAMERS to camp with is always a big plus. We like to camp with just plain folks too.
Roger

Try us; we are an independent AS group; Some of us are WBCCI and some are TAC but most of us just are. We get together twice a year for food and friendship. We correspond on the forum to let everyone know when we will meet next "Fall Festival" in Pecatonica Illinois. View the thread and see if this is something you might be interested in.
Our RULES ARE: FUN, FOOD AND FRIENDSHIP BUT NO POLITICS OR RELIGION.
Come join us; but let Tom Nugler or Airtandem know you plan to attend.
See ya, mike

you can' be turned down by a unit! the only qualification is that you own an Airstream product! Back in '77 when my parents joined you had to be sponsered and approved, much like Moose or Elks. Now you just mail a check in. I doubt a unit has the right to deny membership. this unit should be reported to headquarters.

I wondered about that also.

I joined in 72 and so far as I know I did not have a sponsor back then. Don't think I even knew any one with an Airstream. Possibly some one just signed it anyway.

What do u mean "CANT BE TURN DOWN." ??? We were. I will not say which Unit because we have friends in that unit that we camp with at least once or twice a yr and I will not lose those friends by naming names or Units.

Do those friends know that their unit turned you down?

And re: "Can't be turned down"... just because it may be technically against the rules doesn't mean those rules were followed. (I don't know that such a rule exists, I'm following on the assumption that it's true.)
