The Club General Meeting will be held at Zion Lutheran Church, 7930 Ogden Avenue, in Lyons, IL, after the morning Meet and Greet breakfast. Please come out and join us. We will be having Director nominations, and a great presentation / demonstration of 220 Antennas by Bob Jurgaitis (KA9GQE). Coffee and treats will be served. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.
Our apologies for the confusion with the date for this November meeting. We had to move it up earlier in the month, due to the holidays.
MEETING CANCELLED - BREAKFAST AND TESTING WILL STILL COMMENCE
In our September Board meeting, we appointed a Nominating Committee for Director elections. Our Nominating Committee consists of Laura Plecki, Steven Hill, and Kelvin Jackson. Our next step as the Nominating Committee is to present any current Directors, wishing to remain for the upcoming new term, to the club members at our October general meeting. These Directors, and anyone else who wishes to put their hat into the ring, (as long as they’ve been a member in good standing for at least one year), would be put on the slate for elections. However, due to unforeseen Club Board circumstances, we have had to cancel the October general club meeting of October 21st. Therefore, the nomination of Directors will commence at the general meeting in November (on November 4th at Zion Lutheran Church). Please check the website calendar for further developments. The Director nominations will be followed-up accordingly in December with the Director elections. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion.
Club General Meeting, held in the basement at Zion Lutheran Church, 7930 Ogden Avenue, in Lyons, IL, after the morning Meet and Greet breakfast. (Just a few store fronts east of P. J. Klems Restaurant, on Ogden, in Lyons.)
Please join us at the General Meeting, where we will discuss and vote on proposed amendments to our Constitution/Bylaws made by Jim (WJ9G), and other items as they come up.
We will also be featuring 3 presentations, and they include: (1) Digital Radio by Dick (WA9NNN); (2) Net Controlling by Steve (KB9DSQ) and John (KD9BYW); and (3) Winter Field Day 2018 by John (KD9BYW).
Coffee and sweets will be provided during break. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.
We hope to see you there!
