Consider Running for Office This Year

Officers and a Board of Directors are essential to the operation of the Red River Radio Amateurs and our club owes a debt of gratitude to those who have stepped forward to fill these leadership positions.

But, for the health of our organization, we can not continue to depend upon the same few individuals in perpetuity. It is, therefore, well past time for new Officers to step forward from within our membership.

As specified in Article III of the RRRA Bylaws, a leadership election will be conducted during the February Meeting.
