What it means is that the number of votes each unit is allowed, at the meeting in Salem, is the number of members as of June 1st.
So if someone joins after your unit vote just add their vote to your numbers.
The vote is not counted until the delagate meeting in Salem

But our unit usually votes as a unanimous block. So when a proposition comes forth and say the yes vote wins, usually someone motions for the vote to be unanimous. Therefore the late comers get no real vote since it was all decided in April.

Each unit has their own peculiarities.

Jack,
Sounds as if only those who can take the better part of a week to attend the region rally will have a vote in your unit. What percentage of the membership do you think that would be?

I think they are expecting 18 units up at the regional rally. I would expect that that will be about 1/3 of our membership.

For the vote on the name change WDC Unit is polling all the members and using the actual number yes or no at the internatioal vote. Don't panic if you are a member and haven't heard from us yet, you will before the International.

One thing I did think of while mulling over the cyber unit. If you had you meetings online, what time would you have them ? East coast time ? By the time I get home from work on the left coast the chat night is pretty much over. I guess you could have them on the weekends. I like the idea since I am on the PC in the evenings a lot. This would also tie the WBCCI to the internet (and the forums) in a small way. In some ways it looks like the WCDU goes part of the way with having low dues and a website. Do they hold meetings online ? Vote online ? The advantage of having a cyber unit would be doing everything online except camp of course. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out. I would be inclined to join if a cyber unit were available.

Another question is what region would you have it in ? Since you have to have a region. Or could you just call North America region 13 ?

Just a few thoughts of mine.

Chris

Sorry for my late entrance to the conversation on a virtual unit. I've been on the road and limited in access.

This came up a while back on another thread and it is worth exploring. I've been discussing it over the last couple of months with some interested parties and it appears to hold some merit.

Get me 10 people/couples ready to be full charter members and I will help you pursue it. (If you are seriously interested and willing to help make this happen, send me a PM) I'll follow-up on the question about which Region. Having 10 members willing to make it their home unit is the first step. If there is enough serious interest, we will find out if WBCCI will accomodate the idea.

At least some of these 10 will need to be willing to help create the constitution and by-laws (there are models to get you started) and explore the particulars of setting up a virtual unit. This thread has suggested many issues that interested parties would need to consider. Start thinking about them too.

It will certainly be thinking outside the box for WBCCI, I love it!

Still on the road, so forgive any delayed responses.

Count us in!!

A Cyber UNit would make WBCCI really international again. We thought of founding a european wbcci unit, but that makes no real sense as we are only a few airstreamers overhere and we are spread across europe with long distances in between... A cyber unit would be the chance for us from the other side of the pond to be a voting member of wbcci. I know that we could join any other unit in the US or Canada, but that wouldn´t be the same like a cyber unit, where everybody will communicate by e-mail or forum only.

So, we would join a cyber unit for shure!!

More will be coming out on this later, but the main purpose will be to provide WBCCI members with a designated avenue for communicating ideas, insights, concerns and suggestions with WBCCI leadership. There will also be a communications network of other members who will be designated to listen to member concerns and get that feedback to me so I can direct patterns of concerns and ideas to the leadership. Our specific avenues of communication are being determined.

It is a pretty daunting task but something WBCCI really needs. We will do what we can as volunteers.

Credit for this idea goes to incoming WBCCI President, Don Shafer. His philosphy is that the members run the club and he wants everyone to know he is listening to members' feedback.

WBCCI has members from all stages of life. All are viable members of the club. By providing designated channels of communication, the club can capitalize on its diversity and further its customer service orientation.

I am a past president of the South Carolina Coastal Unit and have been in the club since I was in my early 30's, about 18 years. I like everyone else, am a volunteer with WBCCI.

I would be very interested in joining - but currently belong to the OR unit - way far away from my town.... I maintain their website and NEVER attend meetings. Can I do both?

Yes, you can be in multiple units at once.

Janet,

You may belong to as many units as you wish. One unit is your "home" unit with voting rights. The others are associates. We belong to two.
