Despite what has been happenning politically with the club,there are still some units that are holding their own and even some that are doing quite well.
Each year upon the release of the annual WBCCI Directory (since 1996)I tally up the membership for each unit of the club.I could get these numbers directly from Home Office but for several reasons I prefer to do it this way.
The stats I am going to list are unofficial and the comments my own.In previous years,I have compared my totals to those of Home Office and I am satisified that they are fairly accurate.
Keep in mind that these totals are derived from the information printed in the directory and there are always exceptions.Late renewals by members or units and human or printing errors are some examples of this.
If anyone has any questions on any of the info I provide,I will be happy to answer them to the best of my ability.
I will make several posts of info on this thread to get as many stats out there as needed.
