Old Business
• Fees are due for 2022
• Open position: We are looking for a new treasurer or secretary please volunteer if you feel you have a bit of time to help out.
• Testing: The most recent testing happened. We had 1 pass and 1 fail. None of those who asked for the testing to take place actually showed up.
• Club Dues: Club Dues are due if you haven’t paid them yet

New Business
• Arrl – Please join if you havent already because the ARRL does a lot to advance Amateur Radio and also because it allows the club to maintain insurance for a very reasonable rate.
• Road Cleanup: Still coming up soon, we haven’t scheduled one yet due to the weather
• VE Testing – A testing is in the process of getting scheduled. It should be happening mid to late April. Keep an eye on our website to find out more as more information becomes available
◦ We have the option of storing test materials for future tests, Donnie has been in charge of the testing since Doug left and asked if anyone would be willing to help learn to run the testing. Allen KG5LFI volunteered to learn and help so that testing can happen while Donnie is out and Donnie will order the extra materials and keep them on hand.
• New Members: A unanimous vote was held and 2 new members were added to the club. Welcome to Donovan and Jim.

Motion to Adjourn – A motion to adjourn was made by Bill KK5ZH and seconded by Bobbie N5XDQ and the Meeting Closed at 8:15PM
