Illinois Repeater Association
2017 Annual Meeting Information
The annual meeting of the
Illinois Repeater Association will be held on Saturday, April 22,2017. Note that this is the same location as last
year’s (2016) Annual IRA Meeting.
Road Christian Church
Champaign, IL 61822
IRA Delegate check-ins and
any dues payments will start at 9:00 AM, with the meeting starting at 10:00 AM
sharp. When dues are paid in advance the check-in process is quicker and
eliminates much of the delay. As in the past we anticipate the meeting to
conclude around 1:00 PM.
An IRA "Membership
Information" form on file listing the delegates (max of two) and signed by
the president and/or trustee and showing paid up dues for 2017 are all that are
needed to vote at the meeting.
Every vote is important so
that your association can
effectively represent you in the multi-faceted problems facing the repeater
owners of the country and Illinois
in particular. Therefore, if you
cannot attend this meeting and have no delegate in mind, we suggest that you
appoint one of the current officers or directors to be your delegate. If you later decide to attend the meeting the
presence of the trustee and/or president suspends any previous delegate
appointment and/or written proxy
If you have any questions,
concerns or would like to have a subject placed on the agenda please contact
the Secretary/Treasurer at the address below or the President, Greg Buchwald.
LOCATION FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING HAS CHANGED!
Due to low membership numbers, we were unable afford our past
conference and hotel accommodations in Bloomington. We were forced to find an alternate location
that would host our meeting at a significantly lower cost. Many thanks go to the Twin City Amateur Radio
Club, who is hosting the meeting and providing refreshments, setup and
clean-up, and to the Windsor Road Christian Church for providing the facilities
Windsor Road Christian Church. The church is about 2 miles northeast of the Curtis Rd. exit on
I-57. Curtis Rd. is about 3-1/2 miles S. of the
I-72 interchange on I-57.
Easiest way to get
there from I-57 is to take Curtis
Road exit (next exit south of I-72 interchange, 3
1/2 miles or so). Go east 1/2 mile, turn left (north) at next light,
Duncan, go 1 mile north to next light at Windsor, turn right (east) 1/2 mile to
church on right (south side of street.) at 2501 Windsor. We plan to have a sign on Windsor.
GPS coordinates are N 40 degrees, 05 minutes, 00 seconds, W -88 degrees,
17 minutes, 17 seconds.
