Congratulations Rick and thanks for being numbered among the people who have heard the cry to step up and are actually putting themselves out there to weather the tides and rocky roads associated with running for office. Remember you can't please all the people all the time so just do what you are doing, and don't let 'em rattle your chain.

Carol- Thank you for your kind, good words. It's too bad that when someone steps forward and shows an interest in a volunteer organization that they should run into others who seem to want and see you fail. I should have taken a clue from Dan and just have kept under the radar except in small circles. By they way I don't think I ever mentioned to you that I love your work. We should discuss using for of your shots for the magazine!

Rick

Now when the ballot goes out to the units for a vote all they receive is who was endorsed and a copy of each of our resumes. It will be interesting won't it?
This question goes more to the process rather than the individuals involved: Am I the only one who doesn't like the Nominating Committee concept? If I understand correctly, this year one person in Region 1 decided who will be the Region's 2VP, 1VP and Regional President for the next three years. And at best, three people decide the fate of our Region every year. Is everyone else OK with this?

(BTW, I have yet to receive anyone's resume. Are they handed out just before we "vote?")

Don-

The way it was explained at Region 1 to Dan and I was that the paperwork was going to be given to each unit president along with a copy of each of our resumes that we handed into the nominating committee. From there I am not sure what happens at each unit business meeting.

OK folks, while discussions about politics are generally not allowed at AIR, we do allow them so long as they are associated the topic of the forum. However, that is not a free pass to unfettered rants. Posts must still follow forum guidelines and your volunteer moderator team strongly encourages anyone posting here to read them.

Here are just a few:

Quote:
Please think before you post and keep your comments limited to the topic at hand and above all be nice. If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Forums Contact Form. We'll be happy to address your concerns.
  • Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully.
  • Do not post unsubstantiated gossip, libelous remarks or directly misleading information.
  • Stay on topic by keeping discussions relevant and on track.
  • Be mindful of yourself and others. This forum is not a democracy; it is privately owned and we make the rules. If rules are violated we retain the right at our discretion to remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or remove members. Any abuse toward our staff may/will result in immediate suspension of your account. Complaints about moderator decisions may not be made in posts; instead send a private message to a moderator. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned. Do not repost deleted material.
  • We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate ANY rudeness.
So... post, but be polite; be respectful and understand that others will disagree with you.

On behalf of the moderator team,

Hi, I am a new R1 member and AS owner, about 20 days so far.

Why can't we vote over the internet? A secure pdf is quick and simple.
Wally's original rallys icluded different manufactures trailers. Would you explain why we should be AS only?

From your document (italics mine):
Quote:
Youth & Young Families: As an organization we are seeing more and more newer members who are two income families with youngsters. Their needs are much more different than the WBCCI member of twenty years ago. I believe we need to canvas these members and investigate what their needs are for events and rallies and see what can be done to encourage their involvement within the unit level.


Why them? Why not the entire membership?


Regarding membership, why commitees? Why not some basic marketing and sales? I never even heard of the WBCCI until after I found site.

Good luck and I'll see you on the road-michael

Rick you had a nice letter and I welcome people like you aboard. We need region officers that want to work to make our club great. I would have liked to have seen your resume included. Best of luck.
