Thumbs down

All right units are any of you going to hold your region officers responsible for precluding your right to comment on the simulcast and in front of the IBT on your goals and priorities?

The message from the marketing committee... If the club fails, it is the membership fault for not doing more to recruit new members.

Marketing report: the message is not being brought to the members, it is being dropped. Well yeah, this is the point of break down of communication. While they are speaking of e-mail what we have just seen is clear evidence of breakdown of communication with the time to express yourself cancelled until next year's meeting or Monday in a room away from the IBT and general membership. Benefits? New members, we are growing but 126 non-renews. We need to use benefits to experience it to see tangible benefits. ??? And they would be? Sky Med discount and right to pay International Rally fees and aspirations of grandeur and reembursements?

Takes 8 hours to link BB and region links $480.00 a month 4500 e-mails is for unlimited frequency. Constant contact is available if you contact headquarters.

The FREE system I suggested that the WBCCI use over a year ago gould send messages to members based on regions, units, all members, the first 3 letters of the last name - whatever way you want to do the mailing.
Isn't it interesting that they feel that regions can best reach the members by face to face contact, but there is a push to use electronic media to reach members.

WBCCI.0rg - $3000 per year
BlueBeretOnline.com - $4000 per year
We doubled the cost of the intranet infrastructure.
40,000 views to the "website" - how many new members????

And the "member idea share" on the 29th they have just referred to--who was aware of that so as to forward or share ideas??

I don't think that is a simulcast Maggie. That's the pity of the vote moving it off of NOW!

Fred Richardson's comments about the WBCCI Forums is the same "it's all about the hits" mantra he was speaking in Louisiana in January. The use and usefulness of this Forum for WBCCI members is secondary to the more apparent goal of it being a marketing tool/source of monetary gain, correct?

Isn't publishing the BB part of the allocated responsibility of the Marketing Committee----the funds for which went to Fred Richardson's former marketing firm, which now belongs to his son?

Scott of the VAC apologized that he did not know he had to read the report, he is allowed to summarize...A (a frequent occurrence of long VAC reports,) a goal of a vintage rally in each region to draw members. They strive to hold seminars, open house, concourse, and have fun.

37 vintage rigs in parade.

He ends it there summarizing...

Region officers sponsored happy hour. Question: Why doesn't VAC support region 9? They have had two years running a rally 30 miles within geographical area at the same time. Answer from Scott I do not know but: Region 9 representative has resigned and they are looking for replacement.

Can anyone tell me what constitutes sponsoring a happy hour? I was under the impression that they were BYO. Is it the tent rental?

Region presidents have sponsored a "Happy Hour" for the last few years - They bring the food and in general get to know the members/officers represented at the rally. With the VAC being the largest intraclub, I believe the interaction is of value.
