SARO Mtg Friday – Jan. 22nd

The SARO President’s Corner

I would like time to thank all of the Directors, Committee Chairpersons, and numerous other members who have given of them selves so freely throughout the past year.  As your president I look forward to serving this organization again in 2010.

You’re new and returning Officers and Board members are Vice-President – Gary Tangrady, K5GST; Secretary – Dale Robinson, KB5YSJ; Treasurer – Mike Check, K5UCQ; Directors – Bob Rodriguez, KA5AUW; Pat Knight, AD5BR; and Lee Besing, N5NTG.

The 2010 Committee Chairpersons are: Membership – Pat Knight, AD5BR; Maintenance – Gordon Dial, K5SUZ; Engineering – Stan Stanukinos, KA5IID; Public Service – Royce Taylor, KA5OHJ; Public Relations and Newsletter – Gary Tangrady, K5GST; Web Master – Lee Besing, N5NTG; and Net Control Coordinator – Herm Hartel, N5CNH.

The first quarterly general membership meeting will be on Friday January 22 at 7:30 p.m. We will be at a new location the “El Jalisco Lindo Grill” near the intersection of Wurzbach Rd. and Watercress Dr. this is one block southwest of Bandera Rd. on Wurzbach Rd. The address is 5309 Wurzbach Rd. Suite 115.  Please note it is not necessary to purchase a meal to attend the meeting.  The restaurant is happy to host SARO and we will not have to contend with the mariachis.

I am happy to report that at the end of 2009 SARO has a total active membership of 150 members.  I am confident Pat will have the membership renewals out shortly, quite possibly by the time this article is published. 

One thing the out going and incoming board members discussed and tentatively agreed to was utilizing the convince, speed and low cost of the internet to a greater extent to serve our membership.  We are already using our website to keep our members informed of events, meeting locations, and most recently publishing our Roster.  The next thing we are looking at will be utilizing PayPalTM to pay your annual dues.   PayPalTM will be used as an option, you will still have the ability to pay by check.

This is already starting out to be a great year. I hope this will be better than the last for each of us.

If anyone has any questions or comments please send me an e-mail or give me a call.  Thank you for your continued support of SARO.

73 Eric, WB5ZQ
SARO President
