March Club Meeting:

We are having two special guests at the March 22nd meeting.  Karl Bowman (ARRL Section Manager), and Tom Brown (NC AUXCOMM Coordinator).  Tom Brown will be briefing us on AUXCOMM.   The essence of his briefing will address and outline the current state of the NC COMU as a whole and then, specifically the role of our volunteers under the DHS OEC AUXCOMM label, within the NC COMU. He will flesh-out the interaction with Agencies and what it takes to develop a useful and effective ESF2 group.  He will also do a presentation entitled “winging it is not an option”.  Tom has indicated that he will answer any and all question you may have.

If you are interested in how to execute AUXCOMM properly within NC then your attendance is a MUST!
