Welcome back. On behalf of myself and the HCRA Board Of Directors, we hope you’ve had good and memorable times since our last meeting. With Labor Day Weekend behind us, fall will soon be upon us, and with that comes all those get-ready-for-winter chores. However, for now we can enjoy September and on Friday, September 6th, our first HCRA meeting of the 2013/2014 season.
Traditionally, the September meeting is renewal time for club members. As our Club President, Jim-KK1W says “Your dues go toward funding HCRA events like Field Day and the Holiday Party, offset mailing costs for our members without email access, cover our web hosting and liability insurance expenses and IRLP node maintenance and more. We need your continuing support to keep HCRA rolling along in high gear.” That being said, I’ll have the membership table set-up and ready to assist you in keeping your membership in good standing.
If you’re one of those people who don’t like to wait to the last minute to get things done and/or enjoy new things and new technology, then the HCRA has something you’ll find useful. Membership renewals may now be done online! It’s easy, it’s fast -and- it’s secure. Please click on this link to see for yourself: http://www.hcra.org/membership-payment
Please note however, at this time only renewals can be processed at this time. New members will still need to submit hard copies of membership applications, as their information is not in our database. If you choose to renew in person at the September 6th (or at any) meeting, if you would please bring a completed application with you, it will make the process quicker for everyone. You can download an application here: http://www.hcra.org/membership
73, and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
