CARA Meetings

We normally meet on the SECOND Thursday every month (except December) at the Harriet Brown Community Center, 901 Dares Beach Road, Prince Frederick Maryland at 7:30 PM.  In-person meetings will resume on May 5th with ZOOM available for those who cannot attend in person.

GENERAL MEETINGS:  General Meetings shall be held on the SECOND Thursday of a month, quarterly, for conduct of CARA business.  General Meetings shall be held in January (winter), April (spring), July (summer) and November (fall), although the Board may re-schedule a General Meeting (except November’s meeting for officer election) to accommodate a presentation or speaker so long as one General Meeting per calendar quarter is held.

REGULAR MEETINGS:  Regular Meetings shall be held on the SECOND Thursday of the month in months when a General Meeting is not held.   Regular Meetings are intended to serve as a venue for presentations of interest to the amateur radio community, informal discussion on amateur radio related topics and occasional hands-on construction projects.  Regular Meetings are informal and not governed by Roberts’ Rule of Order.  With the exception of time critical items as determined by the Board of Directors, the only business open for vote at a Regular Meeting are acceptance and installation of new members.  Prospective candidates for officers will be presented at the October Regular Meeting by the Nomination Committee.

CARA LUNCH:  Each Wednesday we gather to have lunch at various eating venues around the county (and rarely out of the county.)  Watch the reflector for time and date.   The conversation usually revolves around amateur radio or other related topics.
