This year, my Director invited me to participate in the Division Cabinet meeting where one of the topics was, "Clubs: Where the Rubber Meets the Road." As a publisher of a seven-club newsletter, I was encouraged by the recognition that local clubs are the focus of local activity. Along with many others, I am convinced that the most important local resource for Amateur Radio is the local amateur radio club. It is through the clubs that licensing classes and exams are offered, operating activities are promoted and carried out, Public Service activities are organized and a lot of fun is had.
Sadly, membership in many clubs is falling off, and the activity levels are dropping. A forum where club leaders could discuss successful ideas for promoting club activities, attracting and retaining members, and rejuvenating their members' activity levels would be a very important and well-received addition to these forums.
I'm available for help in any way, and I praise your efforts so far with this forum project. Let's hope it keeps its positive, forward momentum, and I'm sure it will from all the helpful hams I've seen here so far!
