Election 2020

This year, because of COVID, NARS is going to hold our annual election of officers and board members using an online tool. We are doing this to enable those who are unable or unwilling to risk exposure to COVID to still have a voice in NARS leadership and direction.

There was a brief presentation of the system by Lee Glassman, WA5LEE, during the monthly meeting on Friday, October 16th. The video is available here, for those who were unable to attend that meeting or would like to review it again before the meeting. The process is also described in the November newsletter.

Please be sure that we have your preferred email address on file. You can do this by visiting the NARS membership roster page and locating your name in the table. Click on your last name, and a new window opens with the information we have on file for you. If you need to update or change the information, send a message to Marty Fitzgerald, W5MF,  with the new information. Please note that if your name is highlighted in orange, your membership must be renewed before election day in order to be eligible to vote.


Corona Virus Response Update

Update from our club president Ron Matusek, WA6TQH:

On Thursday, June 11th, Harris County announced a new color-coded system to inform residents regarding the current level of risk from COVID-19 and actions we strongly urge residents take to stay healthy, save lives, and ensure our local economy recovers in a way that is sustainable over the long term.

Current Level: Level 1: Stay Home

There are four levels:

  • Level 1 - Severe (red) Stay Home
  • Level 2 - Significant (orange) Minimize All Contacts
  • Level 3 - Moderate (yellow) Stay Vigilant
  • Level 4 - Minimal (green) Resume Normal Contacts

Because of the statewide shelter-in-place order in response to the corona virus, NARS is making the following announcements regarding club activities:

Stay safe, be careful, and don't panic! This, too, shall pass...
