Club Meetings

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

The Radio Club of Tacoma traditionally holds a membership meeting on the second Wednesday of each month. The meeting is normally held at the Pierce County Library Administration Building at 112th and Waller Road. (Click address for map and directions.  Also, see below!)

Pre-meeting socializing starts around 7:00 PM. The official start time is 7:30 PM.

There will be an entertaining program presented at each meeting.

These meetings are open to all interested folks. You don't have to be a "Ham" or a member to attend.

March 14 General Meeting location:  Pierce County Library Administration Building (for the last time)

Starting in April, 2017, RCT will no longer have access to the Pierce County Library Administration Building for meetings.  Pierce County has decided all libraries will cease to be available after normal hours.

After an exhaustive search for a centrally-located, free, substitute meeting location, the Club has identified one that is, at least, not too expensive.  The new location is the Eagles Aerie #3, at 4810 S TACOMA WAY.  You may have been there before, since we've used it as a meeting location on two occasions recently when the Pierce County Library facilities became unavailable due to a scheduling conflict.

In addition to the location change, the Club is planning a change to meeting day and time.

Starting in April, we'll meet on the first Saturday of each month from 1 to 3PM.  This change will accommodate members who do not wish to drive at night or who have conflicts on Wednesday evenings.

Consequently, the April general Club meeting will be held Saturday, April 7, from 1-3 PM at the Tacoma Eagles Aerie #3, 4810 S TACOMA WAY.

 

Especially significant general meetings

  • During the club meeting held on the second Wednesday in September, the Nominating Committee presents a slate of candidates for the upcoming election in November (officer and director seats with terms ending this calendar year).  Additional nominations from the floor will be accepted at this meeting.
  • During the club meeting held on the second Wednesday in October, nominations from the floor will be accepted for officer and director seats with terms ending this calendar year.  This is the last opportunity to be nominated to run in the November election.  Ballots will be mailed shortly after this meeting.
  • The club meeting held on the second Wednesday in November is the Annual Meeting. Ballots received prior to the opening gavel will be counted, and officers and directors are elected for the upcoming calendar year.

CLUBHOUSE ACTIVITY NIGHT - FOURTH WEDNESDAY EACH MONTH

Club members are welcome to participate in activities scheduled for the classroom and radio operations rooms on the fourth Wednesday evening each month at the Clubhouse. Information concerning upcoming Wednesday activity nights will be published on the home page.


CLUB MEETING PROGRAMS

We're always looking for interesting topics and speakers for our regular membership meetings. Meeting programs usually feature a subject relating to amateur radio that's entertaining, educational, and of general interest to club members and visitors. A display projector and screen are available for media presentations. If you have an idea for a club meeting, please contact the club president or any club officer.


BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING

Officers and directors meet at the Clubhouse on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM. Club members are welcome to attend.
