The Board of the CCARC has been monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation as it has developed along with recommendations as they are issued or revised. The latest advisory guidance is to"Stay Home, Stay Healthy".
In light of this guidance, the Board has decided during thIs period to shift our general meeting to an online forum. We will still have our regular meeting, now online only, login starting at 6:50 pm, meeting starting at 7 pm. To see the videos of past Friday General Meetings that were recorded, click HERE. It will take you to a YouTube playlist of available recordings. You can bookmark the link in your browser for easy future access.
We have developed a SOP for our meeting decision making process. Moving forward, we will make a decision at least 10 days in advance of any CCARC meeting to determine whether it will be online, face-to-face or other option. As a Board and leadership group, we will continue to review our meeting options along with any the continuing developments and the most current recommendations to determine our next steps as a club. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we develop a cohesive meeting strategy moving forward.
On a lighter note, now would really be a great time to invest in those Push to Talk (PTT) radio skills and dedicate some time to ensure your ham shack and equipment are in working order!
