Here is what I was thinking:
statewide club with a name(whatever),
have not heard from the SW,it might come in time.
Each chapter could have a monthly meeting in local central to them,different locals each time as agreed to by it's members.
Perhaps once a year(whatever is agreeable on)a statewide meeting,hosted by each chapter.
The meetings can consist of whatever the members agree on,shows,auctions,of course exchanging ideas.
I will be putting out fliers in the next couple of weeks,with my email as a contact.
Then I will see how much interest I can generate and get back with some numbers.
Then I will set up a meeting to explain what our goals are,if anyone gets back to me.
We already have an offer from a forum member to set up a website or Facebook page for us,I think a website would really be cool.
Now for the sticky part!!
We, at some point will have to think of dues and how we want to do them,each chapter or statewide,of course if we go the IBC route there will be their dues,dues for both would not be that bad.
I do not know how other state orgs. do it,but we could find out.
Elections probably by chapters,any other ideas?
The org.that I belong to now has 2 auctions a year,a percentage goes to the seller and part goes to the club.
All this can be figured out when and if we can get something going.
