I want to thank the membership as a whole for supporting me as Vice President over the last 8 months. Informative meetings, fun extracurricular activities, and Field Day wouldn't be possible without each and every one of you.
As many of you already know, per the bylaws, I've assumed the role of President following the resignation of Nelson DeSousa. Nelson has worked hard for the club for the past two years, implementing new ideas and changes that have laid the groundwork to build up TCRA into a strong, active club. He deserves a round of applause for a job well done, and we as a whole wish him the best.
As President, I plan on continuing full steam ahead to continue to build upon what my predecessors have worked so hard to accomplish. After reading the text on our website about W2LI's glory days, I see no reason why we as a club can't achieve the same accomplishments as our forefathers. Back in the day, our club was revered, winning national competitions, winning Field Day, contributing articles to QST, and being very active within the amateur community. While these are lofty goals, they are non the less goals that we should work to continue to strive for. This requires hard work and dedication, not only from the leaders of our club, but also from the membership as a whole. It takes many hands to accomplish great things, and I hope that you all will join me in this adventure.
A club like ours is only as strong, educational, and determined as its foundation is - you, the members. I'm counting on you all to help us continue to move forward and grow the club into a prosperous organization.
As always, I am always open to all of your suggestions, ideas, and input. Please don't ever hesitate to contact me with your questions, concerns, or thoughts on how we can continue to advance TCRA.
