why hiding in missouri won't work this time...

so here's the deal DW...

since so FEW want their money back, simply RETURN 100% to everyone NOT in the met-NY unit.

IS the met-ny money in a separate escrow account too?

if so give back ALL the money to everyone else (like the growing list above)

this way only met-ny money would be used to buy influence.

ya know, IF that's what happened?

In response to this, I received a private email from LI Pets that he is not responding to requests for information on this "toxic thread". He is also not responding to requests for information from contributors in private messages.

Bob, you seem to have some serious control issues, IMO, and this is not serving you well. Might want to look at that.

I'm not a contributor, but Carol/Wheel Interested is, and you refused to give her this information.

Defend Wally/Metro NY has chosen a representative to the Committee, and he has been duly appointed by WBCCI.

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.

Metro New York took this initiative after being a direct victim of bad policy/practice by preceding IBT administrations in WBCCI. We are taking this initiative where we collectively feel it needs to go.

Arrogance is so unbecoming Bob. You have too many examples in this thread alone to list.

Please Bob, just give the money back and apologize, not to me, but to the people quoted above. They believed in you. They trusted you. Lawsuits should not be looked upon as some "hobby" or game Bob. They affect people deeply.

Now if it passes your suit just died.

The time for such a call to action is soooo premature it's just silly or baseless.

It's over, just chill till the mid winters, if this isn't adopted which I doubt, there will be a mass drop in membership.
I no longer trust you Bob.

Your Committee is already at a serious crossroads and the work hasn't even started.

Bob,
I am new to AS and a brand new WBCCI member and am concerned about many of the issues with the club and believe with good communication and open information of what is happening the committee should be successful in general.

Contributor or not, does this committee not represent the greater good of the concerned WBCCI members? If it is not a law suit now, why should being a contributor matter? Being a committee in WBCCI system now makes every dues paying member of WBCCI a contributor. Is the committee in fact, as others state on here recently, really just a NY committee and that is all that matters?

It is stated that this committee was formed to come to common ground with the WBCCI for positive change as many members want and to keep the club what it was meant to be and make the leadership responsible to keep a balanced budget. The contributors made a good faith investment on a law suit but it appears by your decision to abstain from detailing facts that the committee is for a few people, not the greater good since it has become a SECRET to the masses on what has conspired and what is now on the actual agenda. Communication by PM is just that, PRIVATE. I thought PRIVATE meetings and PRIVATE conversations brought this to be.

It seems to me that there was a lot of people asking questions late July and your statements were to the point that you could not comment on the lawsuit because the attorney’s advised you not to. According to the only time line we have, Leo's, the law suit was tabled mid July and the committee was already formed and there were no lawyers involved. As a neutral, non-contributor I ask you this.

Why should I stand behind this committee and moreover you if the facts and timelines are so secretive? I am just asking as new member that is trying to understand if you and the committee are out for my best interests or just New York’s. I am a member in Region 3 and what I see is Region 3 is a great region and working for the greater good also, I am proud to be counted in their numbers.

Why should I or anyone truly believe you and the committee best represent me?

Why are there secrets? If the actions are honorable a committee should have open records.

Do I trust the committee? Lets just say since I have less knowledge than most but understand the greater good of what Wally's club was about (that's why I bought an AS) but trust the committee at this time, I don't know. I am guarded as to my stance on this but would believe if the committee was open on the secrets that appear to be there trust would soon become a non factor with most people.

I would like to see a Bio on each committee member to understand where they come from and why they are best suited for a seat at the table. Is this bad? I think it is reasonable and maybe some of this distrust will go away. It is not unusual to see bios on committee members and board members in the business world.

Bob, I don't expect you to answer these questions; I just want to spark a few things that a newbie like myself might be thinking. It appears this is going the same direction the IBT has gone with secret and private discussions that lead to lies and deception. I am a person that waits to get all the facts to take a side but I must be honest Bob, it does not look good for you or the committee. There are people asking questions and the get a politician’s dance, a little side step if you will. The only facts posted so far on how this came to be is from Leo but yet he is attacked. Why is that? Share with us and let us see that the committee is here for us all. The lawsuit was for a few basic things. 1) make the IBT accountable for the financials and 2) get a member that has done more for the club to stay on the path that the great Wally Byam set it on. Now that we lost Leo, it appears the goal is already loosing ground. Can the other 50% be saved. Ok so maybe I missed the SOB motorhome issue but that could not happen without rewriting history and a few people don’t control the greater membership required to vote that in, unless the people that care stop being members, then it becomes easier.

Thanks for the forum space to speak out on what a non-Anonymous member has a view point on.

Mike

ps. I guess Leo could be substitued for Miss Mona in the song and sorry Bob but you sure seem like the Governor.

Mike since you took the time to write a lengthy post, understand I'm not replying to any questions in this thread, I consider the thread closed.

You can post in the bylaws thread or as I have said before.

Not to be secret on a call, just not to read trash talk here by others.

Really? Do you have any idea how proclamations like that look? Just in case you dont. It looks arbitrary, and imperious- the very problems that people are having with the WBCCI. Are you certain that is how you want to approach this? Is this any way for the "reform" representative to be acting? Really?

To state the obvious, you consider this thread "closed", yet you're still reading it and responding to posts when you choose.

How much action and support are you getting on that other thread, Bob? Is this approach you've taken working for you? Might be time to reassess and reconsider.

Maggie

I started an open forum, this is silly, I have a choice to post answers where I wish.

Your choice, it is open to both members and wannabe members, naysayers will not be responded to.

This must be the gazillionth time I said this.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f286...s-68639-5.html

As far as action over there maybe when folks get out of the denial stage they'll wake up and realize they have an opportunity to get their ideas considered by the committee thu myself.

So what you are saying now, is that you are no longer saying, what you used to be saying, that you will not respond to non-members, non-supporters, expelled members and former non-team members; but that you will respond to everyone else that agrees with you, doesn't trash talk and are not naysayers. And that the open forum you created, is that the one where you said some people couldn't post to your thread, and then received a moderator's reminder that the thread is open to all Airforums members, and then you said it is, but you dont have to answer them, That one? The one that you made that is open to all, or some, but not to be confused with this thread that is not open to all or to some? btw, no need to respond to me that you are not responding to me.

Such a media hound. What brings you front and center today Bob, any new news? Are we supposed to write NYU for refunds? When do you expect they will be processed and will it be upon request will it be automatic and who is in charge of handling those in case someone would like to make an inquiry? Will the refunds be issued through Pay Pal if they were so donated and by check for those who mailed in their contributions? These questions do not rightfully belong in the constitution and by-laws committee thread. I wouldn't close Howie's thread until he comes back and until you have followed up with answers to spare the unit president from having to repeat herself too many times since you are handling the matter of the lawsuit and defense funds.

This would present itself to be of a particular challenge for committee members to help facilitate uniting the club when you will not address those of dissenting opinion.

When someone gets onto a committee, then acts as gatekeeper of opinions to that committee, then only solicits those opinions that they agree with, it's called confirmation bias.

Through yourself, or through Dona? You sure bilk the lime light, Ill give you that. Better sharpen that pencil and those writing skills Bob, looks like you have lots of rewriting and proof reading ahead of you. That'll keep you out of mischief for a while.

Subject: Membership
Friends

The selection of members for the Bylaws Revision Committee, approved by the Executive Committee on July 5, 2010, is now complete. I am pleased to announce the following appointments:

Dona Garner, Chairman, WBCCI Parliamentarian
Kerry Mattila, President, Ontario Canada Unit
Joe Perryman, 1st Vice President, Region 10
Bob Novak, Member, Metro New York Unit
Tom Smithson, First Vice President, Northern California Unit

I have encouraged Dona to consult with the 2020 Committee, the Vintage Airstream Club, and others as appropriate. I want to thank Dona, Kerry, Joe, Bob and Tom for stepping forward to the challenge of this significant task. My personal interest is to make the Blue Book more user friendly, to reduce the bulk, to review Standing Committee Job Descriptions, and to identify impediments to "fun, fellowship and adventure" - all the while retaining the essential character and the traditions of the WBCCI, including the Code of Ethics. Should you have an input for study by the Committee, please communicate directly with Dona.

Safe Travels

Norm Beu
President, WBCCI
