Building Project Coming in May
In our May meeting, we will be building a Low Battery Voltage Alarm Kit which will let you know when your battery voltage is getting low. If you are interested in building a kit, we will be putting in a bulk order for kits in April. The kits are $12. If you'd like to have us purchase a kit, please get your money to a club officer by April 2nd.
New Club Bylaws
501(c)(7) non-profit corporation. To help us ensure our bylaws met with legal requirements the Executive Committee decided to review and amend the ERARC Constitution & Bylaws. At the November meeting it was voted unanimously to adopt the new bylaws. The new Bylaws which replaces the previous Constitution and Bylaws can be found under the Club Documents section.
Changes in Dues - $25/Individual $30/Family
At the October meeting, it was suggested that we increase the dues to $25 per individual member and $30 per family membership. The increase is part of an effort to further build up the repeater fund. Both the 146.64 repeater and the 146.74 repeater are very old and currently there is not enough in the repeater fund to purchase a repeater if either repeater were damaged again by a lightning strike. A vote was conducted and it was overwhelmingly agreed to increase the dues. The club constitution mandates 10% of the clubs income is required to go to the repeater fund and now an additional $5 from each club members dues will go to the fund. This is in effect for dues paid for 2014.
