I want to thank the membership who attended the meeting at HRO in Milwaukee last Saturday (3/17) for allowing me the opportunity to continue as a member of the WAR board, and for the board’s trust in me to continue as President. It is through the leadership of Greg, Chris, Corey, and Dave, that we’d been able to accomplish so much in the last 6-9 months. And it’s my hope that we can take this organization even further.
With the new by-laws in place, we now have seven board members. Along with myself, your new board include Rick W9RIX (Vice-President), Josh KC9WWH (Secretary), Chris KC9NVV (Treasurer), Bill WQ9A, Mike N9OEZ, and Tony KT9AC.
For now you can still reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but in the near future we’ll also set up our website and email server to transition to the new titles per the by-laws. Keep an eye on the website for new information soon.
Hello everyone. First of all, I hope that everyone was able to enjoy the holidays. I know it’s been a while, but as you can see we’ve made quite a bit of progress over the last few months. Thanks to my fellow board members, the Coordination Secretary committee, and our WAR Coordinator, much of the current backlog on getting repeater pairs have been at least entered into the system, and waiting for final approval. For those waiting for those repeater pairs, you should be hearing from us real soon.
Over the last six months or so, many of us have asked our members to help volunteer for some of the longer-term projects that WAR has been looking at. Some of them include:
Becoming District Representatives for your area
Joining the Coordination Secretary committee
Helping the discussion on possible selective access changes for the NW region
Modifying the current band plan to enhance current technologies, and possibly add new repeater pairs
If you are interested in learning more about any (or all) the volunteer positions available, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any other WAR board member. I hope to have the final volunteer list in a couple weeks, and subcommittees created by the end of January 2018.
