The next LARC meeting will be held on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 7:30 pm
at the Church of St, Jude 1537 Adelaide Street North at Fanshawe Park Road.
This is the LARC Annual General Meeting.
Every May we decide who will be responsible for the handling of the money, physical resources, and determining the future direction of the club with election of our directors for the next year.
There are three basic rules:
1. Only members in good standing can vote (must be a paid member 30 days before the AGM)
2. We must have a quorum (at least 25 members in good standing) in order to hold a valid election.
3. Nominations may be made at the AGM provided the nominator, seconder and nominee meet rule #1.
Announcement: Grand Opening of the Club Station at the Secrets of Radar Museum.
