Elevator music

You can sort of think of the good-natured back stabbing on this thread the last few days as similar the elevator music they play between sessions at the IBT.

Sort of entertainment until the grand unveiling of the proposed new, improved constitution currently forecast for April Fool's Day. . .

so does this mean I have to wade though a month of stories about "I"s being crossed and "T"s dotted before the truth comes out?
Does this mean we will all continue to wonder what is going on?

I am going back to reading old threads. It is rather humorous to read old postings on the WBCCI. I know my own attitude has changed tact 180 degrees in these historical threads. Funny, I thought I was the only one, but many have changed their focus in the past few years. The biggest IBT detractor is now their spokesman and one of the biggest cheer leaders is now a desenter.
ODDLY, the only person who has remained consistent: WheelInterested. She still holds the same position she did from the start. No flip floppin with that lady for sure!!!!

Just to let everyone know the New Constitution was sent to HQ.

It will shortly go to region presidents then unit presidents.

At this point I will try and answer your questions.

If as example the MOHO-sob issue

Will members be receiving a copy directly by Constant Contact through e-mail?

Are you officially designated to answer our questions?

Will there be additional sources available for consultation?

...and not necessarily the one below Although some of those answers do sound mighty familiar. Does it seem applicable to anyone?

The last I heard was that to include a 44 page document was cost prohibitive in the BB.

HQ is supposed to put it on the WBCCI.org site.

An email with a link to it.

It will be in a 3 column format

Bob,

How many members are on the email list? How will the other, non email members, receive notice of the new document? How will the non computer members obtain a copy of the new document?

Bill

Thanks.

Can you offer us some information about the motorhome issue and its prospective resolution? Is that included in the New Constitution?

I believe there are about 3500-3800 emails, everyone else must contact their respective unit president or other unit officer to see if they received a copy from their Region President, who should have disseminated to them via email or snail mail.

What do the proposed documents contain regarding the membership and participation of individuals that own and attend a WBCCI event in a non-airstream product?

A simple synopsis is fine!

Thanks!

I'll be very happy to say it isn't happening, no MOHO sobs

The current language relating to qualification for membership is unchanged


Sec. 1 An adult who owns a hard sided recreational vehicle manufactured by Airstream, Inc. shall be eligible for membership.

What this means is that for MOHO to be admitted in 2012 there would need to be an amendment passed next year by the members .

I guess the most direct question is:

What revisions are contained in Article VI - Qualifications of Member ?

Dan I can't list all the changes suffice to say C & D are deleted.

There are other changes but the Revision defines an abbreviation for Members at Large and gives them limited rights for voting and holding offices.
Provides consistent wording for members who sell their Airstream but do not acquire another RV for travel.

Was there something in particular you were questioning?

The limitations are in two parts. The current constitution (and according to the above, the proposed new constitution) require ownership of an Airstream RV to be a member. Fractional ownership is permissible, so multiple people could be members through ownership of a junker sitting out in a field somewhere, as long as their name is on the title.

Attendance by members in non-Airstream RVs at WBCCI events is prohibited by the current bylaws. The proposed new bylaws may or may not even have been written, depending on who you believe, and apparently will not be divulged for some time to come.

What I'm looking for is a clear answer on what possible provisions are include that may allow a non-airstream owner to be a member of the WBCCI.

Additionally, what wording is proposed to allow "airstream branded or recognized" products to qualify for membership?

None comes to mind except a prior member w/o an RV, maybe

Bob,

So the other 2000 members, plus or minus, must rely on their unit presidents to provide them with the revised constitution? No notice in the Blue Beret, the official communication of the WBCCI?

Thanks Bob,

Your answers were what I was looking for.

Please know that the revised constitution will be posted to the NOVA board and emailed to our members within an hour of my receiving it.
