So if you rent a space for the meeting who pays for it. Are your chapter meetingsNo chapters in Canada i know of charge admission to go to a general meeting.
I fail to see how useful these comments are in a thread where the opening question is : "Y RNT U a NAWCC Member"? Don't you want to know the answer to that question? Or do you only want to hear from the ever shrinking NAWCC membership who like things just the way they are?My feeling is if you want to belong to an organization, you pay to belong, it you don't want to pay, you don't belong. To those who don't belong, you get a lot of help and information for nothing on these forums so those who don't belong to the NAWCC can't complain. Just my two cents, pesos, francs etc.
If you would write an article on European clocks they would be very happy. They arewhich by all accounts is focused on American clocks.
I believe the forum is self funded by a very very very generous person and someI assume that some membership dues go into this (the website/forum).
Rob,Software is very expensive and so are consulting fees and it takes hundreds of
hours in the background of work.
Welcome to the NAWCC, Peter! One of the moderators can help add your banner here on the forum.Actually, I joined a couple of months ago and so I am a member, but my contributions to the message board don't reflect my membership. The little box on the left says "Registered User" but where is the yellow box stating "NAWCC Member"?
How can I get this to show?
Reading this and other comments I would like to say thatI see the NAWCC as an American association based in the USA where the majority of its members are
If it does not look after them it will not last
I think there have been some very good and thought provoking answers.What I would really like to know is why you belong to the Message Board but not to NAWCC.
Rob,Reading this and other comments I would like to say that
this thread was NOT aimed at our international members specifically and why they should become members(we do appreciate you!!!).
It was aimed at all of of the people who use the forum on a regular basis who
share information here that are not members of the NAWCC and ask them:
I am a member from Canada and my horological interests are also not focused on american clocks and watches, which do dominate the content of the Bulletin more often than not. It's partly for this reason that I decided to actually author a couple of articles on subjects that DO interest me: Parisian watchmakers from the early-mid 18th century. I hope other readers share that interest a bit, or at least welcomed a bit of a change from the usual N-A content. A third article I wrote on this subject is being prepared for publication by the Bulletin staff.If you would write an article on European clocks they would be very happy. They are
always looking for good content. We are what are members are interested in. The more international
we become the more diversified the content.
