IBT meeting

Did anything happen at the IBT afternoon session.

This morning was mostly reports We were not here to listen to the afternoon session.

Just got back to hear them adjourn and they are now passing out the 3 digit numbers for the officers.

Congratulations to 3 who opted to KEEP their old numbers instead of taking the "status " numbers

Wait, according to the new WBCCI web site there are over 12,000 members! Who knew the WBCCI was actually growing, erm ...newbies???

http://www.wbcci.org/join

Reminds me of the scene from Rainman where Cruise cuts the fishsticks in half to double the number. All a matter of perspective I suppose.

Perhaps i should have said member rigs?
I suppose if you figure 2 people to trailer plus a few joint owned trailers you could come up with a number like that, but to me thst is creative accounting"

WOW It is bad enough for the leadership to continually attempt to pull the wool over the members eyes but to have a complete misrepresentation to the public is something else.

From the web site.

Live life more fully with your Airstream and over 12,000 members who are Living the Airstream Dream.

Looks like a Chicago vote to me, all that every lived, except MALs, can still vote.

It is very interesting that individuals might be counted as members to build the image but if they kick one out that takes the membership away from the spouse also. A little freedom in marketing here.

Membership numbers

Sometimes people talk about the number of memberships and other times we talk about the number of members. Both are technically correct. I think Tim was told to use the larger number, so it would look more inviting to prospective members, when they visit the website.

It is kind of confusing. However, if they told the truth the other way around, it would also sound a bit confusing. Something like "Live life more fully with your Airstream and over 6,000 Airstreams whose owners are Living the Airstream Dream."

Or maybe not count the beans at all. No sense in confusing prospective members with the truth. How about Billions and Billions Served!

You are all wrong. Neither I, nor WBCCI leadership had anything to do with that copy. I was asked to do nothing more than post the copy, created by a PR firm I believe from the marketing committee. I am betting the leadership may not even know about that copy.

Photo's from the International. There were numerous activities at the fairgrounds. There was a lamb and sheep auction and some 4-H Club shows. The Lamb and Sheep auction was International and telecast Worldwide. There was a very large attendance for this event.

Drew,

If you sign up now for membership you get 5 months membership free.
In other words, the rest of 2012 and 2013 for the same price.

I signed up and sent my check in a couple of days ago.

I guess those membership numbers posted above will have to change again.

I'd believe 12,000 Airstream owners, including both WBCCI members and non-members.

IBT Meeting

I have the July 5th meting crunched and uploaded. It went from 6 hours 30 minutes to just under 5 hours. it is on the site now. Also, per request from a member, I will be adding links to the original files so you can listen to them.

Special thanks go out to Fred Steurer and his crew for getting these recordings, streaming them up to Primecast AND also for FTP'ing them to the site so I could work with them and post them. Fred - if you read this - it has been a pleasure working with you. Hopefully we can take the lessons we learned from this and improve our process.

Right now, its 2:00 in the morning. I am going to bed.....

Thanks Richard. I am doing what I like to do best and what I am able to contribute to the club in the most positive way without getting into trouble or kicked out. I believe that if the club allowed anybody with skills to contribute openly to the club, the club would be in a better financial position. The club should not pay for anything that it can get for free by member contribution - by free, I mean with no form of compensation.

Tim,

Thanks for the prompt posting of the meetings. I have listened to the first five and can now listen to the last one.

One comment on the new website. When you went to the region page on the old site, a map of the region areas came up, making it easy to determine the area covered by the regions. Can you put this map on the new site. I have not yet memorized which state is in which region.

Bill
