Wisconsin Unit voted against the Thor motor home amendment by 80 - 20% at its spring business meeting.

(Wisconsin has proportional voting, so this will be reflected in the unit's vote at the Delegate's Meeting.)

I have an honest question. I have been a member of the WBCCI for three years, and hosted two unit rallys. In that short time this issue has come up a number of times. Can any member make a motion or does it need to be done by a Unit or Region Officer?

It depends on your real question.

Any member can propose a change to our Constitution. Their Unit must agree and bring it forward through their region. The process is described in the Bluebook or at WBCCI.org.

For an amendment that has already been brought forward, like this one, the unit may instruct their delegate to propose a change. That instruction takes place at the unit business meeting in the spring. Of course an individual can propose that direction in the meeting.

At the Delegates Meeting, only the 1 person representing each unit may propose changes to an amendment, based on the instruction provided by his unit.

Hope this answers your question. If not, ask again with more specificity.

Thanks Matt, That helps. I guess to be more specific with my train of thought. If someone or group of someones continues to ask for something that the membership has said no to multiple times. Perhaps someone else should propose that the recent addition of motor homes being allowed into the club should be repealed. I was curious to see how that could be done. Thanks for your help.

I understand your question. Actually this proposal has not been approved. This was brought to the delegates for a vote this summer. It requires a 2/3 vote FOR to approve. It is most unlikely to pass.

Why the brought it back for a vote so soon? I guess a few really want this to happen.

I am sitting in my spring meeting right now in utter disbelief. My unit just voted 10:8 FOR allowing in Thor motorhomes. Un-stinking-believable!

Will your delegates vote reflect the actual vote or do they vote the complete membership of the unit?

Maybe we can have our "President" stop you at the boarder. He seams to stop gas from coming across maybe hot air will get the same treatment

10 out of 18 is only 55.5% of the vote. That is still under the 66.7% needed for the motion to pass.

That is 55% of the unit. The question is will the unit vote be cast in that ratio or cast as a complete membership of the unit. The 66% requires to past is at the International level and it is critical as to how the unit vote will be cast. If I remember some unit tell their delegate to vote the original ratio of the unit and some say winner takes all.

Even this unit being a smaller unit I hope they vote the original ratio because ever vote will be require to defeat this insanity.
