[RAC-Bulletin] 2014 RAC AGM Concluded

On the heels of the 2014 Pacific Northwest DX Convention hosted by the Orca DX and Contest Club held in New Westminster BC this past week-end, the RAC AGM took place on July 27th.
Once again this year, RAC held a simulcast Webinar making it possible for anyone across the world to participate in the AGM via the convenience of their computer or smartphone. Voting capabilities through the Webinar was also made available. RAC would like to thank everyone who helped make the AGM another successful event and in particular those involved with the logistics for the Webinar. RAC's Hounourary Legal Counsel Marcel Mongeon, VA3DDD moderated the online proceeding and we would be remiss not to thank him for his assistance. Bill Gipps, VE7ISV/VE7XS Regional Director for BC/Yukon (and others) also provided valuable help from the actual AGM venue in New Westminster BC.

The venue was made possible by the Orca DX and Contest Club and RAC wishes to reiterate it's appreciation for this opportunity.

The proceedings can be heard through the archived Webinar recording here:

RAC President Geoff Bawden, VE4BAW, made the announcement that next year's AGM was being planned to be held in Saskatchewan.
