Dear Team Members:

It is the ending of a very busy and eventful 2016, and the beginning of a new one. We would like to thank you for your participation in team activities, or, if you were not very active in 2016, invite you to become more involved in 2017. We plan on doing more interesting projects, as well as finishing up some from 2016.

As you may be aware, dues are voluntary, but the money provided by them supports our expanding repeater system, meeting expenses, liability insurance, Web page and list-servs, and other operational expenses. Paying dues enables you to vote in the annual election of officers and directors, and other operational business matters. The dues are fully tax-deductible, and really provide a much-needed support for the team.

The Annual Meeting of the Corporation will be Jan. 21, 2017, immediately following the regular training meeting. The election/re-election of two Directors, and the offices of Vice-President and Treasurer will take place. Any other business brought before the Board will be addressed. Only those team members who have paid dues by Jan. 21 will be eligible to vote.

To make a dues/donation either do so in person with Richard Green or James Zuetell, KC7KBS at any up coming meeting or use the PayPal link below and follow the prompts:
