WCRS Special Meeting

No Gravatar

The WCRS executive has been hard at work getting the society charter updated. We believe we have something that fits with the current and future goals of the group. There is to be a special meeting of the society to get approval of the members starting at 12:00 noon on Saturday February 14, 2015 at the Aero Space museum. This will be immediately after the normal Saturday morning activities.

The proposed document is available for review by members. Contact one of the executive to get a copy ahead of time.
