Ed,

Anyone who has been at Region 7 rallies knows that both the food and the fellowship are first rate. The "two sausage region" thought comes from the fact that the Wisconsin Unit's breakfasts are to die for. (Or maybe die from, if you can't handle the cholesterol. . .)

Continuing on that theme, how about,
"A beer in every hand and a bratwurst in every bun"?

See you down the road,
Nuvi

Ed,
Since you are from Wisconsin, you must have one of these...

Checking in

Good afternoon to all Region 1 Members- Now that it is September 2007, each unit will be holding its Fall Business Meetings and casting their votes for Region 1 2nd VP.

Just a quick follow up to all my fellow WBCCI friends and members that your vote does count and I can counting on your vote. I have sent letters and resumes out to each unit and all I ask is that take a moment to read each and then cast your vote.

With the wonderful fall weather just around the corner, I look forward to seeing you out on the Rally Fields!

Sincerely,

J. Rick Cipot

Please Stop!

This thread was started for our NEU member to let others know that he is running for Region 2nd VP. It has become way TOO POLITICAL and a BIG JOKE!!!!

We ALL need to focus more on how to make our camping adventures a BLAST than all this crap!

Please everyone..............focus on the FUN of our AS and don't scare others off from wanting to become a WBCCI member.

We love all our AS friends and our Airstream "Daisy", and hate to read this stuff continuously.

Regards,
Gail

Question Can somebody explain how regional officers get chosen?

Rick,

Never having voted for a region officer before (that I recall, anyway) I am puzzled about how the regional officer selection process is supposed to work. I consulted the Blue Book—now published on the WBCCI web site—and the more I know about it the confuseder I get. Since you are running for region office perhaps you can help explain.

Here is what the Blue Book has to say about it (Bylaws, pages 21-22):

A. Even-numbered regions shall elect their officers in odd-numbered calendar years and odd-numbered regions shall elect their officers in even-numbered calendar years. (6/23/95)

B. 1. Not later than January 31 of the year in which the election is to occur, the Region President shall mail to each Unit President within the region the official ballot which shall contain the name for each position as listed in the Nominating Committee report.

B. 2. Each Unit President shall be entitled to cast one vote, based on unit instructions, for one candidate for each office for which a vacancy will occur and all votes shall be cast by use of the official ballot. All ballots shall be mailed to the region secretary prior to April 25. Ballots postmarked after that date will not be counted

B. 3. The results of the election shall be announced promptly and prior to May 5.

C. The term of office of all region officers shall commence upon the installation of the officers of the international club at the international rally next following their election.

So this makes it sound like Regions 1 and 7 will elect new officers next spring (2008)--not this fall--and those officers’ terms will begin at the international rally.

Is that how it works, or am I missing something?

(Incidentally, I am omitting any mention of Paragraph B, which is even more confusing. It seems to imply that the region nominating committees were supposed to have picked the candidates for the 2008 election by July of 2007, which is evidently not the case.)

Thanks,
Nuvi

Greetings Nuvi-

The short version of it is that Region 1 is holding elections this fall for regional officers who will take office July 2008. Each unit in the region is given a ballot of candidates for the regional offices. Historically, each officers moves up in rank with a nominated 2nd VP on the ballot. This year we had two individuals interested in the position of 2nd VP, myself and Dan. The Region 1 nominating committee met with both of us seperatly and Dan received the nomination from the committee. At this point during the regional business meeting I was nominated from the floor. A ballot has gone out to each unit in Region 1 along with a copy of both of mine and Dan's resumes. Each member of each unit will cast their vote for one candidate or the other. The winner of that vote will receive the units one vote.

That proccess seems a bit flawed to me. The WH unit has 32 members and the NE unit has 113 and each gets an equal vote?

Since Reg 1 has 6 units what if the units vote 3-3?

Richard,

I was wondering the same thing. My interest is in Region 7, which has two medium-sized units and three small units (in number of members). All three small units put together don't have as many members as either one of the bigger units.

Of course, this is not unheard of. In the US senate, Vermont has just as many senators as New York, for example.

Best,
Nuvi

If tied, Regional President casts tie breaking vote.
