Message from the Secretary/Treasurer
It is my privilege to present to you the Coppell Amateur Radio Enthusiasts 2018 Annual Report. You will see in this report that CARE has helped foster amateur radio involvement through education to help spread knowledge and encourage participation in the hobby, and events to provide hands-on experience and an opportunity to ask questions while using amateur radio equipment in a friendly and welcoming environment.
During the Fiscal Year, which started at CARE’s incorporation on August 21, 2018 and ran through December 31, 2018, we received $1,478.68 in membership dues, donations, and gifts-in-kind goods. It is through your donations that we were able to purchase an amateur radio repeater and start preparing to place it on the air, as well as share information about amateur radio with Coppell-area residents. I thank you for your past and continued support of our mission to foster amateur radio, and I invite you to read about how your support helped us achieve what we have outlined in this report.
I’m looking forward to the 2019 Fiscal Year, including continued support of our educational and other outreach efforts, exploring new opportunities to support our mission, starting up regular Technician classes and license testing sessions, and placing an amateur radio repeater on the air.
On behalf of the entire CARE Board of Directors, thank you for your continued support. Without your help, we would not have been able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time.
