That is good news! I am also looking forward to an update on the Defend Wally web site linked in your signature. The last news flash was that the New York unit asked to be added as an additional plaintiff (sic) in the suit. Did any other units or individuals add their support that isn't currently listed on that page? There is no update date listed so not sure the information is current and accurate.

Defend Wally/Metro NY withholds lawsuit against WBCCI, seeks amicable resolution

Numerous Defend Wally and Metro NY members are dissatisfied with the WBCCI status quo, and feel that positive change in the club is both urgent and necessary if it is to survive. These same members believe that their voices are not being heard, and that positive change is being blocked by antiquated, cumbersome club procedures and disinterested past officers. To address this situation, Defend Wally created a legal fund and Metro NY later came on board as an additional plaintiff. Legal counsel was retained to file suit against WBCCI and institute change.

During the course of preparing the law suit, Defend Wally/Metro NY was contacted by WBCCI. Discussions began, and eventually centered on withholding the lawsuit in exchange for appointing a representative from Defend Wally/Metro NY to sit on a newly created “By-Laws Revision Committee.” This five member Committee would be tasked with consolidating and incorporating changes to the club’s Bylaws and Constitution. Encouraged by this turn of events and intent upon having a seat at the table to institute positive change within WBCCI, Defend Wally/Metro NY has decided to withhold filing suit in the hope that changes in the club can be achieved amicably through this new Committee.

Unfortunately, Mr. Leo G has declined such compromise. He has moved on in another direction and is in no way involved with Defend Wally/Metro NY’s desire to achieve change through dialogue, negotiation, and compromise.

Defend Wally/Metro NY has chosen a representative to the Committee, and he has been duly appointed by WBCCI. It is the desire of this individual to represent any members who are dissatisfied with the club, and to bridge the disharmony between our groups. This representative will be a conduit for these dissatisfied members, and seek to institute constructive change and cooperation from within the club. We believe it is critical to the club’s creditability that the concerns of these members be properly addressed, and that the parties continue to operate in good faith, toward the resolution of any outstanding issues.

To this end we have directed counsel to suspend legal action while the By-Laws Revision Committee meets to generate its recommendations, and the WBCCI act upon same.

Sincerely,
Michele M. Curley
President Metro NY Unit
and on behalf of Defend Wally

Who is the representative to the bylaw's committee? Is it someone who is creative, can make agreements, is not guided by anger, can provide leadership, understands what the legal implications of bylaws revisions are?

Different personalities get very different results.

When will this committee first meet? Who is the representative that NY has selected for this five member committee? and who appoints the other four? When will this committee be announced to the general membership? They would need a meeting of the IBT to approve creating a new standing committee per our current Bylaws. If it requires a face to face IBT meeting, nothing could get done until January 2011. Maybe they could hold a virtual internet meeting.

Ditto to Dwight & Gene's posts, above. How will this person gather information to take to the committee?

I am sorry that Leo is now off on his own, for reasons only he knows, but do feel this committee and the inclusion of an appointee from MetroNY seem to be movement in a positive direction.

Keep us posted.

Maggie

Lightbulb Oh, goodie! Another new committee!!!

What powers does THIS shiny new committee have?

*sigh*

How about giving membership a voice in the running of the club by amending the WBCCI Constitution?
This amendment creates a process where the IBT's actions are directly answerable to the membership.
It creates a separation of powers by giving the task of construing and interpreting the Constitution and Bylaws to the Delegates.
At the very least, allow the membership to amend our Bylaws.

Eliminate mandatory travel.
Mandatory travel = mandatory reimbursements.
Return the club back to a completely volunteer club.
Take a closer look at the recent reimbursement "reductions".
The Executive Committee did NOT reduce its reimbursements by 25% contrary to what they want us to believe.
It's much closer to 10% of 2009 actuals.
And Region officers now actually have a net INCREASE over 2009 actuals.
Once again, Return The Club To A Completely Volunteer Club -- NO Reimbursements.

Make the Ethics and Grievances procedures transparent or eliminate them entirely.
The model we have in place now may be perfectly suited for a small, midwest University faculty.
It does NOT, however, work for a social club.
Clearly.

Pass a no deficit spending amendment.
Increasing dues only exasperates the situation.

Get rid of the International 3VP.

Mid-Winters should be cancelled.
Do it on Skype or by conference call unless it's 100% self-sufficient, including reimbursements.

Good luck new committee!

Wbcci ibt/ec7 wins!!!!

You guys fell for this one? Do you have any idea how long it takes the IBT/EC7 to agree on anything other than spending more money and giving more control to themselves? They never do! They got you hook, line and sinker.

The WBCCI will be out of business before any real changes will take place from the "new" committee. Ask the 2020 guys how all their suggestions are going.

All I can say is, I'm glad I did not send that check in.

SO SAD!!!
