Hey!!

Glad to see we made the list.

Percentage wise we did not have the largest number (28%) but new member wise, we did pretty good (22 new members). I hope we can continue that trend.

If you are on the fence of joing the WBCCI, stop by our WDCU Cherry Blossom Rally in April. We tend to have a really goodtime.

Thanks for posting the numbers. Here's a breakdown of our member and their location that was done by out membership person Star Grover.


Alabama 1 California 6 Colorado 1 Connecticut 1

Delaware 1 Florida 4 Georgia 3 Iowa 1
Idaho 1 Illinois 1 Louisiana 1 Massachusetts 1
Maryland 12 Maine 2 Michigan 7 Missouri 2
North Carolina 4 New Hampshire 2 New Jersey 6 New Mexico 2
Nevada 2 New York 9 Ohio 1 Oklahoma 1
Oregon 1 Pennsylvania 17 Rhode Island 1 South Dakota 1
Tennessee 4 Texas 7 Virginia 16 Vermont 5
Washington 3 Wisconsin 1 W. Virginia 2 Canada 5

I guess we are all over the map

There the Michiganders are in WDCU! And I bet there are plenty more just adrift. Seems the International and Region levels of WBCCI should be trying to reverse that trend of waning units. I think Metro detroit used to be quite large and active years ago. Makes me jealous, I want to move to a different location and be part of the fun. I know I can join you hospitable units for an event, but it is a different experience than being part of your own closeknit unit on a regular basis. You all need to send tutors out to the unfortunate units. How about you super stars co-host a revival rally here?

I am also going to hazard a guess that there is a high percentage of members that drop out are not VAC members, that the VAC retains their members and many owners of new Airstreams with no generational history with the club drop out.

Anyone know if the long range planning committee is on to these stats or merely looking into the fountain of youth and retention of power through Robert's Rules?

Thanks for the breakdown, Mike
As a former MAL joining the HOTC unit has been a great experience. Can you say FUN!

Here is our units new flag/logo, which was recently approved

Ditto what Artstream said. Moving from MAL to the Four Corners Unit has been great.

membership

Mike your hobby takes a lot of time and effort, I for one appreciate it. This is great information.

Now I wish the Units and WBCCI could develop some standards to track related membership information on a consistent basis. I think there was some effort this direction on a Regional level. Things like how did new members learn of the Unit/WBCCI? Why did they join? If they joined a Unit, what attracted them? If they joined as MAL, why? If members don't renew, why - health, sold AS, what? How many members don't renew after 1 year? Why did they leave? What percentage of the total membership attends unit functions. If members don't attend - why? There are lots of other questions that could be asked as well. For me this type of information would compliment efforts such as yours and could be very useful to the Units and WBCCI in understanding and developing membership.

I know you enjoy collecting and maintaining this information. It provides some real insights and things to ponder. Thanks.

Interesting that MAL's are among the "growing" factors of WBCCI, even though we know a number of these members moved from MAL this year into various units to salvage votes on important issues or to join newly formed units. This MAL number well could have been negative rather than positive in the stats. With encouragement and invitation, many MAL's will move into units if they see they are 1) wanted and 2) offered something they need as Airstream owners. 500+ is a big pool of prospective unit members to draw upon and it seems to me that every unit should be fishing those waters to adopt the MALs into becoming unit members. Just some thoughts upon seeing these numbers...~G

Good insightful post.Our unit has been working on this for some time and just yesterday provided to my unit some MAL's in our unit's area.Sometimes an invite to a unit function is all that is needed.
For units that are interested I'm pretty sure that Home Office will provide a list of MAL's in your units area.Some new MAL's may not even know your unit exists.

I believe as the Baby Boomers invade the 60+ space that the membership of WBCCI will climb. WBCCI's backbone is their ability to provide good value in their caravans which no other Airstream organization can. I recently went to a Airforums rally and talked with a lot of AS owners, mostly younger working people...none had ever been on a caravan so they had no appreciation for WBCCI. Until they free themselves and are capable of taking sorjourns of 2 to 4 months they won't understand. I enjoy and support both Airforums and WBCCI for different reasons.
