If you have not returned your periodic update, you’re going to receive a 2nd notice this week. Please don’t ignore this document, it’s a compliance requirement that you must sign and return the periodic update by December 31st, 2017. The terms by which you agreed to as a Holder of Coordination specifically requires you to maintain your relationship with WAR, and thus maintaining your coordination. We used the Primary Contact address listed for your coordination back in February. Now we’ve used the HOC and the Sponsor addresses to try and make contact. Please comply with the 2nd notice.
I wanted to give everyone an update on where we’ve been over the last 5-6 weeks.
First, WAR and the Coordination Secretary committee have been meeting via audio and web conference almost every week since August. Most of the discussion has been on learning the coordination workflow, as well as educating ourselves on the software. Recently, Dave KA9FUR has been able to allocate some time into helping us, as well as taking on some of the backlog before passing it to the committee. It’s safe to say that a lot has been accomplished, especially within the last couple weeks.
The Coordination Secretary committee hopes to have complete access to the database and paperwork over the next week or so, and from there we can assign tasks to the committee members and get back on track. As part of the process, procedures on reaching us via e-mail or postal mail has changed so that all correspondence go through the committee. For those who have submitted applications for new or updated repeater coordination, we promise that you should hear back from someone in the committee soon.
Dave also completed the second notices and passed them on to the WAR Secretary, so for those who have not completed the first notice should get your reminders in the near future.
Lastly, we have confirmed the 2018 Membership Meeting for Saturday, March 17th at Ham Radio Outlet in Milwaukee. Doors will open around 9:30 AM, with the meeting starting at 10:00 AM sharp. There will be plenty to discuss, so I hope to see you all there.
I will follow up with you again in the next couple weeks as to our progress. If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
