August 2020 Membership Meeting Minutes

Good Day Everyone –

I would like to thank those of you that were able to attend the virtual Membership Meeting a couple weeks ago. At the meeting, we showcased what the Coordination Secretary Committee has been working on over the last few months and how we’re working to ensure every request is handled efficiently as well as how we’re documenting our processes to ensure future members are able to get up to speed as quickly as possible.

Please find below the recording of the meeting as well as a link to theĀ archived minutes here.

WAR Membership Meeting – August 15th 2020

Also, if you have any comments or suggestions as we develop an SK Coordination Transfer Policy, we ask that you please email cases@wi-repeaters.org and we’ll be happy to take your feedback into account.

2020 Final Notices Sent

One of the initiatives this year has been to clean-up many of the out-of-date coordinations, some of which haven’t been updated since 2013. Besides from the yearly Annual Updates that have been sent out via the mail we’ve also attempted contact via email and unfortunately we’ve only received responses from a handful or past due coordinations.

Today, we sent out 34 letters to Primary Contacts listed on 57 coordinations, notifying them that they have until September 31st, 2020 to respond, otherwise we will begin de-coordinating the associated coordinations.

Below is a list of the pending de-coordinations. We ask that you please take a moment to review and reach out to the club, holder of coordination, or anyone really that can help ensure we keep any active repeaters coordinated. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at annualupdate@wi-repeaters.org.

August 2020 Membership Meeting

Good Evening Everyone –

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful summer! It is once again time for us to meetup and discuss what the board has been working on as well as address any concerns the membership has. However, in compliance with the CDC, WHO and local ordinances, the August membership meeting will be held virtually online.

For our August membership meeting, we will be using Zoom as more people seem to be comfortable with it. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, I would recommend checking out this quick 1 minute video on how to join a meeting. We will open up the virtual meeting approx. 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting to allow everyone a chance to join. Also, please be sure to enter your name and callsign in the name field when joining (as shown below).

Below, please find a copy of the agenda for the meeting.

I.   Introductions
II.  Secretary's Report
III. Treasurer's Report
IV.  Coordinator's Report
V.   Old Business
VI.  New Business
   i.   Coordination Management
   ii.  Knowledge-base / Documentation
   iii. Adoption of changes to WAR Policy
VII. Adjournment

A couple of items to note here:

First, the board is proposing a change to the current Policy to only require periodic updates bi-annually instead of annually. With this change you’d only have to fill out the “annual update” every other year. You can see the proposed changes here.

Second, we are asking if anyone has any old or new business they would like to bring up at the meeting, please complete the form using the link below or email us at meetings@wi-repeaters.org to have it added to the agenda.

That is all for tonight, but if you have any questions on the meeting, just email us at meetings@wi-repeaters.org and we’ll be happy to follow-up with you.
