Questions for discussion if you value the WBCCI

Any responses, comments, questions or suggestions should be sent to hq(at)sierranevadaairstreams(dot)org

If the WBCCI decides to separate itself from the SNU, it will not make much of an impact on the SNU, how it operates, or what it does. The WBCCI will lose an advocate for membership and a flag in the Great Basin, further tarnish its identity, and diminish its role as the Airstream association towards just becoming one of many. SNU members who wish to retain their WBCCI membership can do so via another unit or as a member at large. Doing so will not impact their support and participation in the SNU.

This episode provides a number of very clear objective behaviors that can aid those who value the WBCCI in addressing its problems and issues. There has long been complaint about the ‘good ol boys networks,’ cliques, asocial behavior, and other identity and governance problems in the WBCCI but none provide as clear an example of these issues and problems as the story of the SNU trying to show by example.

Here are questions for discussion for those who value the WBCCI and seek to improve its health and vitality:

Note: This is a work in progress. If you have any questions or comments you feel should be addressed, please let us know.
