#8507 is assigned, according to the 2006 directory, #31997 is unassigned.

If you are joining you can call WBCCI and request a specific number (we used our house number) and if available, you've got it!

NO SECRETS HERE! ALL WBCCI MEMBERS ARE WELCOMED TO ATTEND!


UNIT LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP SERIES

A series of four leadership workshops will be offered at the 2006 WBCCI International Rally in Salem, OR. The workshops are open to all members and unit leaders in all positions are encouraged to attend. Recognition will be provided to those who finish each workshop. Those who finish all four workshops will be named Certified WBCCI Unit Leaders. Names will be published in the Blue Beret as a means of acknowledgement.

Workshop 1 Basic Unit Business Operations for WBCCI Unit Officers
Covering the fundamentals of the business of WBCCI units, this workshop is critical for all unit officers and all members who wish to understand the administrative needs of their local WBCCI unit. Learn about: unit officer job descriptions; tips for conducting effective meetings; effective communications; the WBCCI organizational structure; the WBCCI Blue Book; unit bylaws and Policies; leadership transitions; standing committees needed; WBCCI Insurance; financial management; Merit Award Program; important due dates/responsibilities; Region and International resources.

Workshop 2 The Making of Great Unit Rallies and Caravans
Creating Fun, Fellowship, and Adventure
Fun, fellowship and adventure are the heart of WBCCI. Learn about various ideas for creating successful unit rallies and caravans. Brainstorm with those from other units. Share ideas on such things as theme rallies or caravans; youth rallies; community service projects; joint rallies or caravans; intergenerational activities; special events and so forth. Discuss the general elements of a successful rally or caravan in small groups. Learn strategies for improving communication. Open to all.

Workshop 3 Leading and Motivating Volunteers
Rally and caravan success relies heavily on the ability to involve members in ways that get them invested in the club. Effectively leading volunteers requires a different approach from leading paid employees. Learn strategies for motivating/leading volunteers and capitalizing on member talents. Explore the concept of the servant leader and various leadership styles. Discuss ways to build unity with in a club. Open to all.

Workshop 4 Building Membership
Recruiting and retention are important to every WBCCI unit. This workshop presents membership boosting options such as participating in the adopt-a-dealer program; implementing a mentor program; utilizing the media kit and other public relations ideas; employing strategies for following up with potential members; developing a unit web site; hosting a unit open house; and orienting your membership toward recruiting. Open to all.

Trailer preservation, WBCCI numbers, and responsibility

As proud vintage owners, we were rather dismayed after reading the International President's remarks regarding the responsibilities of being WBCCI numbers and in particular the display of numbers on our trailers. We are fortunate to be involved in a wonderful local unit as well as the VAC community, and we feel the WBCCI is a viable and useful organization with much to offer its members. But the adamant inflexibility the leadership often exhibits is difficult to reconcile with the organization's obvious need to blend tradition with new membership growth and retention.

We have not adhered the numbers directly to any of our trailers, although we do have them on plexi inserts we can slide into the front and rear windows of our Tradewind. As a museum curator, my initial reason for not sticking them to the aluminum was simple - preservation. In the course of polishing our '64 Tradewind, whose original numbers had been removed many years ago, I found dozens of cracks in the aluminum where the old numbers and WBCCI logo had been. Apparently, the mixture of adhesive and moisture retention had caused a deterioration in the aluminum, and no amount of polishing will repair that. After seeing the damage and spending more time and energy than I care to recall in polishing the trailer, there was no way I was going to put new numbers on. Likewise, I was not about to put them over the original Plasticote on our '71.

The integrity of our trailers and the investment we've made in them is far more important to us than adhering to the strict conventions of a group to which membership is voluntary and a privilege of Airstream ownership rather than a responsibility.

There are healthy and creative methods of blending tradition and history with innovation; working in a public history museum environment every day forces my colleagues and me to find ways to do so. I would have hoped by now the WBCCI would have recognized the need to find those methods within the organization and perhaps looked to the success of the VAC as a model, but the positions taken by WBCCI leadership often indicate that's not the case at all. And, to us, that's reason number two to leave the numbers on the plexi and off our aluminum.
