I hope you are all enjoying some warmer temps! The last few weeks have been pretty chilly. It is time again for our Annual Membership meeting. However, with the current state of things we are going to continue to remain as virtual for the time being.
We will be using Zoom again, 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.
II. Secretary's Report
III. Treasurer's Report
IV. Coordinator's Report
V. Old Business
i. District Representatives
ii. Hot Spots
iii. Adoption of changes to WAR Policy
VI. New Business
i. Election of Directors
A couple of items to note:
First, the board is proposing the addition of Section III, G as linked below. The purpose of this addition is to provide better guidance and policy around the transfer of coordinations to ensure those previously involved have the ability to maintain the repeater(s) in question where previously it was technically first come, first serve. This was discussed at the August membership meeting last year as well.
Second, as with every Annual Meeting, we’ll have election of Directors. This years elections will be for Directors 5, 6 and 7. If you are interested in serving as a Director for WAR we encourage you to have someone nominate you or self-nominate. There are no specific requirements to serve as a Director for WAR, other than participating in the monthly board meetings which are held over Zoom. Below is a list of those currently serving in these positions and up for election.
Director V: Tony Casciato, KX3H
Director VI: Mike Waschbisch, W2WAY
Director VII: Joshua Roskos, KC9WWH
