The membership approved both the constitution and By-Laws.   89% of the members voted to approve, providing a good margin over the 2/3 or 67% needed.  26 of the 28 members voted and 25 voted to approve.

  
Congratulations to us all!
The votes are in.  The Club now has a name; Upshur Area Amateur Radio Club.
  
The tally is shown above and it is impressive that with 28 ballots mailed out, 24 were returned.  The Committee did a good job selecting three names, out of the suggestions submitted, to have such a close vote.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen and all those who voted.

  

Constitution and By-Laws  
The Club’s constitution has been unanimously approved by the Club Formation Committee and is ready to present to the membership for vote.  The By-Laws are still in the Committee where details are being worked out.
