Welcome to a new year with the White County Amateur Radio Club (WCARC)! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. As of our January meeting, there have been a few important changes in the club.
First up, let’s welcome our new officers for 2018. Club President is John O’Connor (KD4WX), Vice President is Daniel Marcum (KK4MKZ), and Secretary is Steve Kujawski (NN9J). They are dedicated to making 2018 a great year for WCARC.
Second, WCARC will now be charging dues. The rates are as follows: $20 per year for an Individual licensed ham, and $30 for a Family of two or more licensed hams per year. As with anything, it takes a little cashflow to keep things running smoothly. This includes upkeep of the local repeaters we all enjoy using, small promotional items for local events such as the Liberty Square Celebration, etc. WCARC has proudly been dues free since the beginning, relying on a few generous donations to make all of this happen. We feel like the new rates are reasonable, and will help the club grow and become more stable. Dues are to be paid by or on the date of the February club meeting each year. Check whitecountyarc.org soon for more information and a copy of the membership application.
Lastly, but most importantly, WCARC needs to update the club roster. This is where we need your help, and you should be receiving an email about this soon. If you wish to remain an active member of the White County Amateur Radio Club, please respond to the email or contact us through the website and let us know. It is crucial that the club to keep an up-to-date list of our active members, not only for our own records, but for the ARRL and ARES as well. We will be doing this update at the beginning of each year and we would very much appreciate your response.
That’s all for now. We hope you have a wonderful new year and that ham radio and WCARC will be part of it.
