HF Bulletin #3
Hold onto your HF hats!

The WARA 2020 AGM was held on Tuesday Oct. 27, 2020. Due to COVID-19, it was a “virtual” meeting conducted by a telephone conference call using a teleconference system provided by Trevor Peirce, VE7TAV. After one technical issue during the first few minutes, the meeting progressed smoothly and orderly. We received reports from the President and directors. COVID has had an effect on all club operations including cancelling all of the public service events. Our treasurer Brian Summers VE7JKZ presented a detailed report and a budget reflecting the changes to our income stream. The budget was passed by a majority vote. Thank you Brian. We also held elections. There were 4 incumbents and nominations for 2 new Directors-at-large. See ve7vic.ca/executive/ for the updated board list. New “Directors-at-Large” Board Members are
- Glenn Lindsey VE7GRQ – HF Stations
- Don Tolson VE7ATJ – Education
I would like to thank all of the members who attended the meeting and all the people who have supported the club the past year, Respectfully Brent VA7BNB, President WARA
