Vote here on WBCCI motor home issue

This is a simple preliminary poll to try to see how the "four winds" are blowing on the airstream forums...I'm hoping that everyone who reads this post will participate in the poll. There is an option for everyone in the poll!

The poll is separated into two parts (i.e., WBCCI members and non members) so we can get a better feel for how this forum thinks on this issue with a split of votes by WBCCI membership vs. non-membership.

Note, non-members of WBCCI...here's your chance to vote on a WBCCI issue!

P.S.

A "yes" vote means you are in favor of allowing Four Winds motor homes into the WBCCI.

A "no" vote means you are not in favor of this.

no offense...

i've already voted.

there already IS a poll on this topic...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f286...oll-29426.html

it's not perfect but makes THE salient points obvious.

i hope we (on the airf) aren't headed toward multiple polls on the same topic...

like last year, when there were 4-5 polls on the name change issue

NONE of which mattered ultimately to the wbc.

or is this really another 'game' thread...

cheers

I assume a Yes vote is in favor of motor homes?
What's the difference between "not voting" and "abstaining"?

(I didn't vote on the other poll because I'm not a WbbcI member).

No offense taken.

1) I did see the other poll but wanted to make the fine distinction between WBCCI members vs. non members.
2) I'm sure you can now see that this is not a duplicate of the poll you referenced above as the other poll doesn't differentiate between members vs. non members.
3) I am not in the habit of posting duplicate polls. With regards to whether or not the ASF is heading in that direction...I can only say I can't speak for them.
4) I don't care if this matters to the WBCCI...it matters to me and perhaps to others who are reading this.
5) This is not a game thread.

Maybe the voting climate has changed and some will vote differently at this time. Or maybe it just feels sooo good to vote your preference because it doesn't matter to the IBT. Again. Besides others like Yuki and I still care about the WBCCI.

A "yes" vote is in favor of letting Four Winds motor homes into the WBCCI.

The "abstain" refers to someone who is counted toward the total count of members that are voting but this member is abstaining from voting. This is an important distinction in WBCCI voting process because it determines how votes are ultimately distributed.

"Not voting" simply means you don't intend to participate in the voting. It is different from "abstaining" in that you are not counted toward the total count of people who are part of voting process. I'm not sure if I've articulated this clearly. Anyone else feel free to help me out.

I always feel so good after voting!

And I can't wait to vote "NO" at our upcoming business meeting.

I am betting the results will not be far off from the 2 choice poll I ran before. I'll perdict an overall 80% or better against. Of course I voted WBCCI member against. Mr. Schafer and the rest of the IBT, are you listening?

I agree. I just wanted to see the break out by member vs. non member and I wanted to measure the apathy vote too. Now, all I need is for everyone to VOTE!

I voted no!

I heard a rumor that three out of the 12 regions voted no at the IBT meeting. Does anyone have more information on this? Is it true? If so, what are the three regions?

I know that Region 1 voted against the MH issue. I'm not sure what the other two regions are. Is there a chance this MH issue will actually make it through and pass???

I don't know who the other vote was either but I think the 3rd was not able to be contacted for the emergency IBT meeting via e-mail so it was 10 yes 2 no and 1 not voted.

I don't think the member support from the units would be high enough to have it pass (2/3 of the units vote by delgates at Perry?). Also it has been said that there are those that voted yes to having the amendment voted upon by the membership, and not yes to the amendment's passage.
