CARA Meetings

We normally meet on the FIRST Thursday every month (except December) at the Harriet Brown Community Center, 901 Dares Beach Road, Prince Frederick Maryland at 7:30 PM.

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.   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.

CARA BREAKFAST:  The club meets the third Saturday of each month at 9:00AM for breakfast at various locations.  No business is handled but everyone seems to have fun!  The Breakfast location will be announced each month.
