RAC Ontario Section Bulletin for August 21, 2010


1. Transforming Radio Amateurs of Canada

At the RAC Annual General Meeting in Halifax on 6 August, President Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW, officially launched RAC’s transformation process. The intent of which is to provide context and set the stage
— specifically, the why, how and what of RAC’s transformation.

We hope that all Canadian amateur radio operators, members and future members, read the documents at tinyurl.com/rac-transformation and reflect on the information they contain.

Then we ask for your comments, suggestions and recommendations on how to transform Radio Amateurs of Canada.

— Peter West, VE3HG, RAC VP of Public Relations
