Region 7 2nd VP Candidate, Visions of a New WBCCI

OK Gang, a new Thread to discuss the visions I have and what I have to offer the WBCCI and Region 7.

As a jumping off point and an update I have the questions from the Region 7 Nominating Committee and will be providing my answers this weekend. I have to get it back to them soon. I have also been requested to provide a time for next week to do a conference call with the committee to be interviewed I guess.

In short, after I get my answers together and go over them with the committee I will post them here and on SW. I will also put some notes together on the call. I feel that this information shared with the group will provide some insight on what is asked but more importantly to help provide more “insider” info to help draw more people into getting involved in the WBCCI.

BTW in the other thread J Rick referenced that a younger group needs to get involved, I think that is true and I am even younger then him!

Region 7 2nd VP Candidate

Good Luck

Ed,I am looking forward to hearing your views on the path WBCCI needs to take to ensure it's future growth.
As a long time WBCCI member (Age 48),I feel very encouraged that folks like yourself and Rick are using this forum to enlighten members(current and future) of your vision to update WBCCI.
It's also nice to understand the process one must go through to achieve office.
Best of luck to you.

Ed---Good luck in your quest. When you bring energy, a track record of service and accomplishment in previous offices of WBCCI, a true respect and love for the club, demonstrated leadership skills and emphasis on being a team player and consensus builder, these are the attributes that will hold you in good stead with nominating committees.

How about:

The other candidate is Joan Lahr, current Wisconsin Unit president (at least until the upcoming installation rally).

I don't know whether or not if she is active on this forum. You will recall that the Region 7 nominating committee has promised to publish the candidates' replies to their questionnaire, however.

Best,
Nuvi

Thanks for the suggestions on a campaign slogan, Brats, Cheese; the Packers (even though I am a Browns fan) are the core of my Wisconsin location. The Region is full of great items and themes. One of the best is back when Jesse was Governor of MN the sign at in the rest area at the WI - MN line said “Your in Minnesota, BE NICE!” I thought that was very cool. I knew I always liked a Governor that was a professional wrestler!



So how about “You are in Region 7 and we ARE nice?”
Region 7 where nice people live……………
Oh hell how about “Welcome to Region 7 you better be nice to us our we’ll make you eat brats and cheese, clog your arteries, give you a heart attract and lock your hospital bed TV on a Packer game.

Ed



Hey Leo, we need that red suit on this thread, can you fix us up? I am thinking that if I am named, elected or whatever that I could make that the uniform for all Region officers. With that carrot out there I should have no problem filling the Region offices!

Hey, Ed,

You Region 7 officers may be incurring significant wardrobe expenses. Don Rogers says he's going to specify kilts when he's Region 7 president! I guess you can put it on your expense account. . .

Cheers,
Nuvi

Cool The mysterious Region 7 - sausage link

Leo,

Quote:
I was lost at the "more than a two sausage Region" -- didn't get it at all. I was starting to think that Sausage was the main product coming out of that part of the country.
Actually this is a Region 7 (maybe Region 7 VAC) inside joke.

A few years ago at a Region rally, one of the units (don't remember which) was carefully vouchsafing each breakfast attendee exactly two sausage links, no more and no less.

At the next Region 7 VAC rally, Ed was working breakfast. At one point he dumped another pan of sausages into the serving tray and announced, "Take all you want--this ain't no 'two sausage' rally!"

Since that time the "two sausage rally" has entered the Region 7 lexicon--hence, "This ain't no two sausage region!"

See you down the road,
Nuvi

Hi all,
If you go back and look at my posts I said I would share the questions that were asked of the Region 7 candidates. I also said I would like the info distributed to the membership and that the method had yet to be determined. That is still the case. The membership I am concerned about for this election is Region 7. I am only one person/one vote on a committee of three but will do what I can to get the info to the Region 7 members. I can only directly influence the way my unit handles its voting.

There is a process in place in the WBCCI for the election of officers. We intend to follow that process. If someone sees a need to change the process it needs to be done using the process. (thats kind of redundant)

Answers and Information

First, Kilts are very cool; I will be the first in line to get mine to support my Region 7 President’s wishes. Hey just don’t look under mine, I and I promise not to bend over. BTW, aren’t these things wool, and don’t they itch? I got to get one that is silk lined, I have tender skin!

Leo, I still like the red suit, thanks for the post.

Thanks John for explaining the 2 sausage rule to the group. What is really amazing is that rally was just one of the Region 7 VAC Rallies that we sent a rally refund to the attendees! We had plenty of food, a good time, NO MEETINGS and we got money back, what more can you ask of a rally! It’s all about the budget, good planning and making sure that no one goes hungry!

Pete, I don’t think anyone on this thread is asking to change the process, the process is the process. I don’t think that when I stated that I will be sharing my answers to the questions the Region 7 Nominating Committee asked me is outside of the process. I might be wrong but I’ll check in the Blue Book today.

As stated in earlier posts, I will share my answers on this Thread, and on the Save Wally site. I will do this when your team has had a chance to read them and determined how they will be shared with the Units. Again let’s show the non- WBCCI members how we do things, it is a recruiting tool (if all goes well). Me I have a thought, how about posting the Q&A on the Region 7 website? Just one more progressive idea for the Region to consider.

Ed,
Posting on the region website and the unit sites is one of the options I would like us to use. I also want the info sent to the unit presidents to help them with the unit votes. An informed electorate is always good.

Pete, I agree, get the information in the member’s hands and let them tell us who would be best to lead the WBCCI into the future! News letters, Web, calling tree, rally fliers, you name it. The membership needs this info!

Hey a rally flier telling the membership of Region 7 why they need to vote for me! I need to get to work! A flier is needed! I need art work, I need to call my brother the art major, I need to call my publicist, I need help……………!

Ed

Ed,
I'm glad to see that you have decided to continue your service to the WBCCI membership by seeking office at the region level.

Nuvi,
I vote for "This ain't no two sausage region!"... thanks for passing along that story. Considering the outcome of that rally, I think that it is indicative of "what can be" under the right leadership.

I guess this means I need to take a break from restoring my A/S and get around to sending in that WBCCI membership form... See, Ed is not even elected yet and the membership is growing!
