Several years ago, the South Mountain Radio Amateurs Executive Board decided we needed a mission statement. The club was growing in numbers, There were several nets, projects teams and meetings happening several times weekly, and interest in the club and hobby was growing.
As discussion began, questions were asked, “Why are we a club”; “Why do we exist”; “Where do we want to be (as a club) 10 or more years from now?” The answers came quickly after the questions were asked. For the love of the hobby, the “magic” of radio and the fellowship we enjoy when playing radio with other hams.
Please read the following “Mission Statement”, and consider what you can do to promote the hobby or volunteer for one of the many committees or become an Elmer to a new inexperienced amateur.
This is your club, this is our club and together we will make this club even better!
