President’s Message

2018 is winding down.  And you know what that means… it’s time to start thinking about the 2019 Board of Directors!

We’re a large club, and we have a lot of activities and events.  So, naturally, we need people to plan these activities and events, and handle the routine matters that are part of running a club.  We’ve had the good fortune of having some very involved club members recently, many of whom have served in different roles for more than a few years.  As we move into 2019, some Board members have said they’d be willing to stay on for another year – perhaps in a different position than their current one – while others would prefer to bow out and pass the torch to someone new.  We expect we’ll need someone to fill the Vice President position, as well as the Education and Public Relations positions, and we’ll also have one Member at Large position available.

I’ve never been to another club’s Field Day, but I did see a lot of Field Day photos on Facebook. Nothing I saw even comes close. I posted some photos to CVARC’s Facebook page at the end of Day 1, and then I shared the post with a couple of ham radio-related Facebook groups.
