From: RAC Headquarters Date: May 15, 2000 Subject: Summary of the 2000 Annual Board Meeting The Board of Directors of Radio Amateurs of Canada held its annual meeting on April 28 and 29, 2000 at the NAV Canada facilities, Cornwall, Ontario. A brief summary of some of the highlights is provided here to our members. The Board received reports from members of the Executive, Directors, and Standing and Advisory Committees and dealt with action items arising from the various reports. The Board approved the following: Implementation of a four-point program on: 1) Membership recruitment whereby Directors will make direct telephone contact with non-members, inviting them to join RAC. 2) corporate advertising and sponsorship, 3) policy determination on Director expenses and 4) five year business plan for RAC. Life Membership fee increase effective September 1, 2000 to $1,250.00. Quarterly payments for Life Membership are to be discontinued. All other membership fees remain unchanged. The Executive positions of Vice President of Government Affairs and Vice President of International Affairs were amalgamated into one position until the end of the term of the current executive, continuing under the direction of Ken Pulfer, VE3PU. The position of Field Services Manager was moved to an Executive function, to be known as Vice President, Field Services. The Board welcomed Pierre Mainville, VA3PM, as the newest Vice President in the newly created role. The Board expressed a sincere vote of thanks to all the RAC volunteers, and in particular the people who assist at HQ, with the Website, and with the QSL Bureaus. Full Minutes of the Board meeting will be posted at a later date on the RAC Web Site and in a future edition of The Canadian Amateur.
