May has arrived and just like that we have broken out of winter and right into what already feels like summer!
Over the last couple general meetings, I was disappointed that our membership attendance has fallen below quorum. This makes it difficult to effectively run the club and address club business items that come up. I encourage the general membership to attend the general meetings not only for the interesting presentations but to also get an update on what the club is working on and get your voice heard on what we could change to make it even better for everyone.
If you have not been able to attend the last few meetings, please make an extra effort to attend the upcoming general meeting in May and especially the one we will have in June, as we will be conducting our biennial executive election. We are looking for interested individuals that would like to join the executive. Although most of the executive have indicated they will have their name stand for re-election, there will be some that have decided to take a step back and we encourage the membership to consider participating with the executive and help make decisions on club business during a 2 year term.
I am pleased to see some positive momentum in establishing a CARA Field Day event. It will take place at the Military Museum just as last year. It may be a scaled down event compared to last year as we have not had a large turnout of volunteers, as of yet. If you are interested in participating at the Field Day this year, please stay tuned to the website and more information will be posted shortly.
Rocky Mountain Rally in Invermere is happening May 25 - 27th. I understand that there are several radio volunteer opportunities still available at this wonderful event and I encourage you to consider this event. There is additional information posted in the general forum on the CARA website for this event.
Thank you and see you at the next general meeting!
