(And if you had previously read :: A Global Need for Principled Leadership :: A Global Need for Principled Leaders :: A Global Need for Principled Geopolitical Leaders :: and :: Universal Virtual Organization Code of Ethics: A Priori Ethics :: then you would know exactly what I mean by that - however, that being said, do not attempt to read them now because it would take you at least a full day to finish.)
In other words, Join the Club or Follow the Crowd when it is expedient to do so, knowing full well that the consequences of such action would automatically place me in my own glass house wherein I would lose all moral authority to advocate on behalf of the virtual organization management discipline and The New Virtual Organization World. Well, for starters, that is definitely NOT an option for me.
Enough of the Cryptic Talk
(Although, from an historical and short-term standpoint, these deceptive methods and practices have proven to be very reliable, effective and successful nearly 98% of the time.)
I want to make sure that each member is clearly aware of Who I Am, What to Expect from Me personally, What the League Is Really All About, what they are really signing up for, and that we will only settle for "leaders with grit." I don't want anyone to experience "buyer's remorse."
As the saying goes, birds of a feather flock together. And if you fall into that category, there is no need to thank me - the pleasure is mine!
Surprise in Store for 2018 and 2019
We are cutting back on the total number of League members worldwide from 50 to 20. (To reflect the maximum number of members who can participate in our monthly excursion.)
As well, the annual membership dues will increase substantially during the period 2018-2019 for NEW MEMBERS ONLY.
WHY? The opportunities that will be made available to new members will exponentially increase in the months and years ahead. The bulk of the hard work will have already been completed. And these NEW MEMBERS will greatly benefit from the pioneering efforts of the original League members.

The Reason for the Consortia
What this means is that, after 20 years of preaching about and teaching the virtual organization management discipline and standing by, hopelessly waiting for some Pioneers, Investment Gurus, Think-Out-of-The-Box Executives, Visionary Leaders, Change Agents, Game Changers, Great Thinkers, Brilliant Educators, Revolutionary Leaders, Legendary Policy-Makers, Legendary Innovators and Futurists with Foresight, etc., to begin to implement my vision of The New Virtual Organization World, I finally came to the realization that I can preach about and teach the virtual organization management discipline all I want, until the cows come home or until hell freezes over, but unless I took steps to realize my vision of The New Virtual Organization World, it would remain just that, a vision that would have just continued to slowly fade away with each passing day.
Thus the reason for these three (3) consortia. They represent the backbone and infrastructure of The New Virtual Organization World. They bring life to and serve as a catalyst for the development and orderly arrival of The New Virtual Organization World. They serve as a concrete example of what the virtual organization management discipline makes possible AND how every single organization and governmental entity can begin to make use of it and benefit from it NOW, TODAY, THIS MINUTE and SECOND instead of viewing the discipline as just some abstract notion of how to organize in a virtual environment.
No Smoke and Mirrors
So how do we go about promoting these consortia and recruiting new members? The answer is simple: Through extensive relationships built during a period of over 40 years of being in business, and through social media. No smoke and mirrors - just plain old-fashioned, hard and smart work!
Please note we are clearly aware of the fact that the standard method is to offer FREE MEMBERSHIP to a few blue chip companies, get a few FAKE ENDORSEMENTS or nice words from some Key Executives to place on our websites in order to attract dues-paying members, etc.
Several individuals had contacted us regarding a FREE MEMBERSHIP in return for bringing to us their friends and colleagues as dues-paying members. I said, NO - for the simple reason that you should judge people by what they do and NOT by what they say.
Why? That's because we are looking for Collaborators instead of Lookie-Loos, Fence Sitters and Can Kickers who need convincing and have absolutely NO intention to Contribute. Your presence there would be a huge distraction and very disruptive to the Real Deal team players who understand their goals and mission and are there to Contribute. Our Consortium is NOT a social network or Country Club. OR,

The membership dues are bound to substantially increase instead of decrease over the long run. Eventually, it will become necessary to impose a limit on the number of organizations which can join the consortium and the membership requirements will become much more restrictive.
Current members will NOT be affected by any membership dues increases and their dues will remain fixed for the lifetime of their membership, including annual renewals. The reason being that their contribution during the consortium's early stages would have established a very firm and solid foundation for all NEW members. It's our way of rewarding them for their dedication and contribution when we needed each other the most.
And by virtue of working with and having direct access to these individuals, they can also offer to finance or invest in their colleagues' projects.
I then go on to explain that VOMI or the Consortium itself has absolutely NO CONTROL over what projects that a consortium member chooses to participate in nor the financing or investment vehicle used to complete such projects.
It's as if they are unable to think for themselves when they are placed in unfamiliar territory. They'd rather walk away from billions of dollars in opportunities and settle for deals which may result in a total loss of their investment - a daily occurrence for major lenders and investors - due to the fact that they only have a superficial knowledge of the players involved and nothing but a cursory understanding of the projects financed.
Hence the primary reason why I insist that all investors and lenders become active members of a consortium.However, that being said, our Ultimate and Overriding Reason stems from the belief that it is in the best interests of both the Consortium and its Investor and Lender members that we bring about a certain amount of cohesion and discipline, a level of stability, and a degree of consistency when it comes to the selection of investors and lenders for projects which will be developed worldwide over the next 60-100 years.
Think About this for One Quick Second: As a Consortium member, who would you rather deal with when it comes to having your projects financed?
1) A fellow consortium member who is a Subject Matter Expert on the sort of global projects that you will be developing over the next 60-100 years.
2) Or a complete outsider - some Tom, Dick and Harry or XYZ Investor and Lender out there, regardless of their size and reputation in the financial services industry, who is totally clueless about the players involved as well as the philosophical underpinning, the nature and scope of your projects.
As for these lenders and investors, I say, mentally, of course, "What a paradox! People who are good at making money and yet have no brains. It's a damn shame they are unable to get their head out of the sand."Thus, if you believe you are a lender or investor who is an exception to the rule, I welcome you with open arms!
