You have my full and complete respect for the Caddyshack quotes on your .org post.Y2K3SRT said:Geez, too bad they don't do a "word count" thing over there, I just wrote a novel. Oh, and if I am reading the Benz site correctly, they still have ALL of their members vote for National offices, not just an elected few:
1. There shall be elected from among the Active Members, eight Directors at Large. The Directors at Large shall be members of the National Board. Each Director at Large shall have the duties and obligations to the Club as set forth from time to time by the President and the Board.
2. The National Officers of the Club shall be the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer who must be Directors at Large.
So the members (ALL of them and not just officers) elect the DAL's in the MB club. The DAL's as part of the National Board then decide who among them shall be President, etc. I have never voted for anybody in a VCA Zone and was never asked to do so. One eager beaver asked me to nominate him as a DAL (not even near the midwest) and start a petition to get him on the ballot. And he had zero qualifications from what I could see (he wouldn't even return my calls when I was trying to become a client in his day-to-day business). But hey, now he is part of the Augusta level of country clubs. Good for him.
Yeah, you were the first one to ever get a clue over there Issues arise repeatedly there, remember my thread about who should even be able to be a member of the club, i.e., just Viper owners? Every so often though the frustration level over an issue rises enough to result in threads such as I started, I'm sure it happened before I was there, and I'm sure it'll come up again.Smokin said:There seem to be a SMALL group who gets a clue every now and then and starts something, it just took y'all another year and a half or so to figure it out.
Slaughterj, just a comment in passing..... That is by far the most civilized and informative thread regarding the VCA organization that I have ever seen. I applaud you for the way you are handling it. Your points are concise with no axe grinding. Good job and good luck.slaughterj said:I have posted a thread on the VCA site (link below), and would like those of you Viper owners here to peruse it and support what I'm seeking.
