As the past membership chair, I can not tell you how many times I have heard that.

but how do I join the VAP? Would you let a subgroup of "waiting to become vintage" owners form under the VAP? (The devil made me say it)

Paula,

You join as a subscriber. You will receive the Vintage Advantage, you cannot run for office and you cannot vote in the annual election. Other that that, I believe, you are a full member.

Pauls, additionally, if you are a member in good standing in WBCCI (not sure if you are or not) you can join as an Associate Member.

Well heck, that's exactly what we are all used to in the WBCCI, you get a BB and you can't run and you can't vote! Let's hope if the VAC ever seceded they might change being stuck in the past and let us in with a vote and an opportunity to volunteer as a full member and not just a mere associate member. It hasn't hurt Tin Can Tourists thus far that I can tell. Perhaps there could be a combination Classic Vintage Airstream Club. Besides the CAC already have a history of leaving WBCCI behind and then got courted back into the fold.

Seriously, the idea Ed proposed is that you can only vote NO by voting for someone else! I will ask the DENCO Unit to cast its votes for Ed at our business rally this May! If the majority votes for Ed instead of Hyde then our delegate will nominate him from the floor.
Ask your local unit to do the same.

Okay Ed, I have written to my Unit President to ask that they review this thread and if you run they consider also voting no to the slate and nominating you. I'm hoping this will be brought up at our business meeting.

Metro Detroit and Nova are you on board? I would hope Region 4 will begin to become more active in club matters and rallies and internet presence!

Wink Yo, Ed! You still out there?

Before we start putting this on our business meeting agendas, do we know yet if Ed is actually running this year?

"...[C]andidates may be nominated from the floor provided written consent to serve has been given." Constitution, Article XIII, Nominating Committee, Section 5.

Nope

Did some checking and NOPE, not doing it this year. Too much BS with no return. I will run next year and will have things in place the right way to do it.

I will propose our membership ask that our votes be counted AGAINST or ABSTAIN on both Nominating Committee Candidates. I'm also going to propose an amendment (I know it will take a year and a half) to require the selection of Nominating Committee by the Delegates present at International...must be a current Unit President or his alternate delegate.

Support?

The second part of you message confuses me. Please explain.

This would mean the Nominating Committee candidates would NOT be pre-selected. They would not be chosen by the previous committee.

Bottom line...

Do we have anyone willing to be a write in?

Or, is this thread recommending a "no" vote?
