At the General Meeting on
October 7th, 2013, the membership voted to
accept revised/updated Bylaws for the
organization. This resulted in a reorganization
of the Board of Directors, adding one position
to the board and creating the positions of
President and Vice President.
The new ByLaws can be found
The organization of the new
board can be found here.
At the next General Meeting on November 4th,
nominations will be open and a special election
will be held to fill the vacant board position.
Thanks go out to all whose
hard work contributed to updating the ByLaws and
bringing the organization forward.

According to our EC Don K9DRW,
if you don't have a weather radio, you REALLY
should buy one.

serious about Emergency Support should have a
go-kit, or maybe more than one. It may be
something you keep in the car or something
mostly packed and ready to go at home. Even if
you don't have one, you should think about what
you might need to have in case of an emergency.
This is a presentation that
Dan O’Connor, KE7HLR made at EMCOMMWEST in 2008.
It's a rather large PDF file (about 3Meg). If
you don't have a high speed connection, I
suggest downloading it, and reading it off line.
It's great 'food for thought' and well worth the
read. I found myself mentally comparing Dan's
ideas to what I have assembled and thinking
about what I might want to add.
