I want to say it’s been a pleasure to serve as your President for the last two years. The club is vibrant, active, and financially sound with membership at an all-time high. With a committee approach to projects and special events, more members have become involved in club activities. We have a very successful education and license training program coupled with a well-run VE program. We’ve redesigned our website and added a social media presence for CVARC. We’ve also completed the realignment of our dues structure, reducing the annual dues and giving all club members a May renewal date.

I’d like to thank the members of the board who are leaving at the end of the year. Norm Campbell-AB6ET, Charlie Pember-KG6CLT and Eric Peterson-WB6PYK have all made invaluable contributions to club and I’m grateful for their efforts.

Our first club meeting of 2018 is on Thursday, January 18th and will feature a talk on emergency preparedness in Ventura County from Bill Boyd, Emergency Manager with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services.

Until then, let’s hope the bands open up and you spend lots of great time on the air with the hobby we all enjoy.
