General Meetings. General Meetings shall be held on the first 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 first Thursday of the month in months when a General Meeting is not held. The December Regular Meeting will be a holiday meeting open to all members and their guests, with time and place to be determined at the November Business Meeting.
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.
