RAC Annual General Meeting 2018 Overview
Thank for attending the RAC AGM!
The RAC Annual General Meeting, which was held on Saturday, August 16, 2018 at the Annual Red Deer Picnic and Hamfest, was likely the largest attendance at any previous AGM – even larger than in Ottawa last year.
The Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club who organized the event observed that they had the largest number of campers at their site and the largest number of people at their evening dinner. They thought that the presence of the AGM had attracted more people.
Amateurs from Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary were most numerous with others from further afield in Alberta and British Columbia.
About 100 people were present at the start of the meeting which featured presentations from Tim Ellam, VE6SH (IARU President) and Ken Oelke, VE6AFO (QCWA President) on the merger and how they had seen RAC develop over the past 25 years.”
The Radio Amateurs of Canada is pleased to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Red Deer, Alberta as part of RAC’s 25th Anniversary Celebration.
