I'm sorry that that is not the case.
I will relay your message to my membership.

So much of your statement disturbs & saddens me.
And I don't particular feel like getting into a whinge-fest about
what I feel is neither wholly truthful or honest throughout your
But I would like to address one particular section:

If the CGW does vote to secede, any members with remaining time on
their ICG membership who wish to remain with the ICG will not be
abandoned by the ICG.
We will find them a new home with another ICG chapter for the
duration & they will certainly be welcomed & encouraged to stay by
the rest of the ICG. Their rights & privileges will be honored by us.
Currently Jan Price (the VP) is heading up a committee to amend our
Standing Rules so that these Transitional Members will receive full
benefits from the ICG. And that committee is busily hashing out the
pertinent wording to put before the Board within the next 2 weeks.
This committee is not a reflection of the CGW issue; rather it was
formed immediately following the Annual Meeting to address future
issues. This has pushed their schedule forward a little but they are
pursuing it in good faith.
Whatever CGW's decision, we will always welcome those who wish to be
part of the ICG.

that the con is absorbing are basically publications and badge
creation. The gains can be that it helps top off the room-nights
which can have a dramatic effect on costs. If that one membership
pushes your room-nights from one level to the next, the con could
save thousands, which is definitely worth the ~$50-100 cost of the membership.
