RCT MEETINGS and the Corona virus

As of 3/17/2020 and in accordance with directives from the Governor of the State of Washington, all RCT meetings that require a physical presence of members are canceled until further notice.

We are developing procedures for remote meetings - keep your filaments lit and stay tuned.

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

The Radio Club of Tacoma holds a meeting for the general membership once each month.  We meet on the second Saturday of the month (effective February 2020) from 1:30PM until 3:00PM.  At some point, we hope to return to our meeting site at Tacoma Eagles Aerie #3, 4810 S Tacoma Way (map).

However, with COVID-related restrictions on meetings, RCT will be meeting remotely.  Members can join using a computer, a mobile phone, or by calling a telephone number (audio only).  Instructions for joining these meetings will be emailed to members.

Pre-meeting socializing starts around 1 PM. Our official start time is 1:30 PM.

The Eagles kitchen now offers meeting attendees lunch from their limited menu of hoagie sandwiches.  These are $6, and chips are included.  To take advantage, please arrive a bit early and get your order in by 1 PM.

There will be an entertaining program presented at each meeting.

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

Especially significant general membership meetings

  • During the general membership meeting 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 general membership meeting 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 general membership meeting 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.
  • Special meetings may be called at any time during the year, with advance notice to the membership, whenever Bylaws modifications are to be voted on.

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 this website's home page and publicized on club nets and via email.


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 large video display is 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.
