Meeting called to order at 7:39 pm. Fifteen members in attendance, one guest (John, recently licensed, electrical engineer, worked for a number of area tech companies, KC1GGG.)
Treasury report: We sold off a number of rigs, and are planning to buy new early in the new year. There will have special meeting to discuss that. Special thanks to Mark (N1CT) for doing the heavy lifting, shipping of the rigs, etc.
We put down payment on another venue for the holiday party on 12/14 – the Laurel Athletic Club. Liability insurance will be renewed at the end of this month. We’re in good shape balance wise. We will invite the CT section manager and section emergency coordinator.
Elections of Officers: nominations are now open for all positions, but selections from the nominating committee are: Jim (KC1FB) for treasurer, Rachel (KB1VWJ) for secretary, Paul (WB2JVB) for VP, Tom (K1TA) for President. They’ll be announced again at the holiday party. George (AB1QK) will be not seeking a second term at the end of this year for club president. He recognized Sam and Paul in particular for their help in shepherding him through his time in the position.
We got QSL cards from the Lighthouse Event in September and are in the process of sending them out. The club now has beautiful new QSL cards to be used for club contacts!
Motion made by George (AB1QK) to adjourn at 8:11 pm, motion seconded by Jim (KC1FB).
