To answer your questions...

1. It is true that we were turned down because Regional 11 did not see the reason for another unit at that time.
2. I'm not sure that is entirely true - we were told to submit directly to the IBT at the winter meeting - and we had a lot of support to do so.
3. That is true among other things - there was concern that our charter had not been reviewed by the bi-laws committee - the motion was withdrawn with a committment for the Region 11 President to work with us.
4. I don't know if its an about face as much as the WBCCI is recognizing (finally) that the membership is declining. Also the IBT felt it would be better to go through the process of Provisional status first to make sure everything was in order for full charter - I can understand that.

Personally, I think the WBCCI should do everything it can to encourage new units to form - lets face it we are all unique, have different interests and for the WBCCI to grow we need to attract new membership. I am very active in Boy Scouts of America and we go out of our way to form new units - I know the WBCCI is not BSA, but to my thinking we need to look outside the WBCCI and see what makes others successful.

The WBCCI is far from getting its act together, but I think the acceptence of new units is a great first step and I do think this is a really huge positive step they are taking.

YIPEEE! Thank you! This is exciting. I think a lot of members will be proud to support your unit. Wonder what unit has the highest number of associate memberships. Let's show 'em some real big numbers when they go back to review the charter!

Looking at numbers...

Kens et al -

A HUGE congrats to you and the folks that kept this from sliding off into the weeds.... Great work!!

Thinking back to a comment made above, about numbers.... since I am a member of the NM unit, can I (for an additional fee) going another unit ( the FCU) so that my allegience can be properly reflected?? Or how can I work this since I ultimately want the FCU to have my $'s?? Full change over will naturally be next year at renewal time, but I want to be seen as supporting FCU NOW!!!

Thanks for any and all input.

Axel

This is just too cool. New blood and new ideas will honor Wally and his original vision.

So what is the process, do I first join the WBCCI and then the FCU?

Please fill me in, so I can join and begin supporting the FCU.

Good news

Ken, Richard, Brad and others,

Congradulations on your hard work and I am sure that you will succeed. There are twelve units in California, we belong to two, each one has its own style and personality. It is important that there is enough variety so that everyone who is interested in joining WBCCI has a unit that they are comfortable with. Your BSA analogy is correct, since each troop has its own personality and there are several in each city to meet the individual needs of each scout. The troop my son went through is completely different from other troops in the city.

Bill

Just a quick note!

First, “Way to GO!!” glad you guys are on your way. I hope all
works out in the end, it looks like it will.

On another note. I know some of you joined the WDCU because
it looked like at one time the 4CU was not going to make it. I know
a “MAL” member can move their membership to a “Unit” which will give them voting rights through that Unit at anytime during the year. I am not sure if you are a current member of a Unit that you can move your membership after the WBCCI dues have been paid and vote through that new unit. Before moving your membership from the WDCU to the 4CU, be sure you will be allow to vote through the new 4CU. I would double check it with the appropriate person on the IBT. Make sure you get that you can in writing. I’d hate to see you guys not get to cast your votes at IBT this summer.

FCU - it's not just what's for dinner...

dear richard,

i'd like to apply for the highest paid jod in the unit "unofficial but official overly officious rally greeter".

please don't say no, as you know my head keeps sweeling w/ each rally i "work", creating my own personal weather system. i would be willing to even work a special deal for y'all. say, earn less, but my camp free, eat free, and of course the all important drink free, is etched in bauxite.

please note i belong to the WCBCCI #1808 and the VAC, not to mention every other vintage club in the west. refrences upon request. as your personally aware i'm good w/ small chrildren and animals, both large and small.

if it comes down to it, we could go by who's best dressed using 4x starch, best trailer over decoration and sweetest personality.

hope you have received that 4CU post card i sent you and jan, which includes a sappy g rated note, a super hero stamp and of course is suitable for framing (both sides).

my attention span is very short unless your blond (although i make exceptions) please keep the business meetings under 90 seconds.

can i bring my herding dogs to deadhorse?

xoxoxoxo

Paul,

You make a good point, hopefully there is some exception for a newly formed unit.
