Bob, when are you going to tell them that the revised constitution does not give MALs a vote?

When will you tell them that members who sell their Airstream can continue as members as long as they do not buy SOB, UNLESS it is SOB parked in a permanent or semi-permanent location, used as a vacation home?

What if the member buys the SOB before they sell their Airstream? The devil is always in the details.

Forrest can you give us any update on your amendment progress?

Thanks, Dan

Rodney, You do not have to be a lawyer to sue someone. Do it a dozen or so times and you might just feel you are a bonified lawyer.

I could explain wallowing. I will need a pool, some water, some dirt, and a healthy contribution of dues money

I love this ecomotion. If you talk down to someone, you just put a and it makes it appear you meant to be humerous It works very well in this thead

Forrest’s surprised at that remark…..in our conversations we spoke about the use of the word bylaws meaning both.
As far as asking for input see the last line in the 8/29 email below "Should you have an input for study by the Committee, please communicate directly with Dona." additionally you know a thread was started on this forum for input.

From the beginning this committee was doing both the bylaws and constitution AKA the Bylaws.
It was not an opps moment as to the conflict at all.

We could have presented both at the mid-winter, but what if the Constitution is amended at the delegates meeting, that was the possible conflict not that we changed direction.
We set time table in August to have the bylaws done a certain date and the constitution by another date.
In presenting the constitution first it was the most logical way to accomplish a Revision.

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
Rod the above email wasn’t enough as you stated, below see the 9/17 excerpt from the Presidents Monthly Newsletter distributed via Constant Contact.

Perhaps you missed those emails?

A revision in not a tweak see RONR p 575

Incorrect as you can see in p 1 below

I know you have RONR please see p 575 a revision is everything.

The term Bylaws encompassing the Constitution is common.


In an email-International President's Newsletter, which was sent on 09/17/2010 2:15 PM EDT by Constant Contact the following was stated;

The following represents current information of general interest to the WBCCI membership.

1. The Constitution and Bylaws Revision Special Committee is taking shape. Approved during the International Convention/Rally at Gillette, WY on July 5, 2010, the Committee includes:
· Dona Garner, Committee Chairman and WBCCI Parliamentarian
· Kerry Mattila, President , Ontario Canada Unit
· Joe Perryman, 1 VP, Region 10
· Bob Novak, Member, Metro New York Unit
· Tom Smithson, 1VP, Northern California Unit

The Committee's initial report will be made during the January 24-28, 2011 Mid-Winter IBT Rally in Robstown, Texas. My general guidance to the Committee was to recommend revision to the Blue Book which would reduce the "bulk" and make it more user friendly, while at the same time retaining the essential character and traditions of the WBCCI, to include the Code of Ethics. The Committee is already hard at work, and I congratulate each member for stepping forward to contribute to this potentially significant effort.

Norm Beu

.
The Blue book is the Constitution, bylaws and policies.

Am I correct that the CODE OF ETHICS was not retained in the new version.?
That the ethics and grievance comittee will be gone?

Would the new code of conduct be basically a suggestion? Or is there some way it could be misused to harass members in the same way the code of ethics was?

CoE gone,
grievance committee gone

CoC can't be used that way, I know where you're coming from no issue there.

If someone does something so egregious, action can be taken according to and thru RONR, but its a totally different process.

Well,

Now that the CoE is out, Grievance Committee out, Leo could be back in!

This thing might be worth passing after all.

You are partially correct.

Once the process has been followed and the Delegates are deliberating, the proposed amendment may be "perfected" by simple majority vote. The IP and Parliamentarian explained the process in Sarasota.

The proposed change will be discussed, one article at a time. The change proposed for each article may be revised by simple majority vote of the delegates. Following completion of this process, the "perfected" proposal will be subject to a vote, requiring a 2/3 approval.

The units will debate the original proposal and, hopefully instruct their delegate to work toward improvement. Otherwise, this change will not likely pass.

It seems that one of the major problems with passing (or not) these changes is that we have to use the old system where the delegates and IBT can slice and dice everything that comes before them. I would be happy to see the demise of this along with the burial of the code of ethics and all that goes with it.

We are not on the same page here. I was asking Bob how the amendment or motion process would work without having delegates, once and if, the New Constitution passes as it is currently written. From here on we may want to designate our comments and questions as B.C. (before the new constitution) and A.D. (Anno Domini...after the time of its emergence and separation from the body, or simply after delegates are no more.)Whoops I apologize for being confused and confusing and will try to make myself and the distinction clearer in the future.

Matt, I did want to ask you if you could present your power point presentation as a webinar? I think some units or individuals may not have the opportunity to view the presentation otherwise. Besides going live on the internet it could be archived and available for download. Is that something that could be incorporated into WBCCI's method of release to the membership?

My apologies to Bob. The thread wanders and so do I.

I'm expecting to get the PowerPoint from Jackson Center, as a UP. I think it will also be available at WBCCI.org.

When I have specific information, I will let you know.

NO, my bad and thank you Matt. The information you both gave is very useful. I just want to differentiate between the statements and am desperately trying to imagine how the WBCCI will work without delegates. It's a tough scenereo to wrap my mind around and I must admit I am highly skeptical of that particular proposed change.

I still think we have a better bargaining system in place and if the EC vetos or returns or delays actions by determination or interpretation results will not differ much whether we are individuals or delegates, but for now, the delgate process has methods to circumvent the IBT entirely and pass membership changes, and we were darn close to achieving a great success. I HATE to give that up. And I want to see Forrest's amendment continue and pass giving membership more power to be a checks and balance to the IBT/EC.

How about this, everybody talks about the amendment, thereafter, instead of voting on the at that time on the spot a ballot is sent in to HQ, soon after as in 1M1V.

that help?
