For immediate release:
At the Dayton Hamvention on Friday morning, May 18, RAC President Glenn MacDonell, VE3XRA (at left in above photo), presented Tim Ellam, VE6SH, International Amateur Radio Union President, with RAC's first Gold Maple Leaf Operator Membership.
Tim made a special request to become RAC's first Gold Maple Leaf Operator Member to illustrate the International Amateur Radio Union's continued support of Radio Amateurs of Canada. Thanks Tim!
RAC created two new categories of our Maple Leaf Operators (MLO) Membership level: Silver and Gold as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations. Other national Amateur Radio organizations – as well as non-Amateur organizations supported by membership – have several levels of participation allowing those who are able to do so to make higher contributions to sustain the organization. The new Silver and Gold Maple Leaf Operator levels will make this possible.
