    RSGB with an interesting post ...

    I have spoken to almost 100 clubs/hamfests/conventions. I always check the Web before any visit - to see what a "new ham" will find when they perform a basic Google search ...

    For example, if I were a new ham and looking for clubs in my neck o' the woods, I would enter:

    riverside CA ham clubs

    -or-

    riverside amateur radio

    Those clubs with savvy Web site managers really stand out from others.

    Another "successful club" tidbit: I have spoken to the Pasadena, CA ham club a few times. They are one of a handful that actually POLLS its MEMBERS: kinda like a "customer satisfaction survey."

    They ask their members, "Are we doing ok?" "What topic(s) for speakers would you like to have?" "What type(s) of events interest you?" A WONDERFUL concept - every club that wants to not only maintain membership but GROW in numbers should make sure they are doing what their membership wants!

    You can tell a lot by how comprehensive a club's web site, how updated it is, and whether it is an ARRL special service club. Also does it have RSS, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and email links? How well does it promote younger hams and recruitment. I am proud to claim our website is one of the best in the world!

    Chris, my name is Tom, KM6MIS, and I happen to live not to far from you (alta loma) and am looking for a good club. I haven't heard anything good to be frank. Recommendations?

    You have several excellent options in the region!

    I have spoken to all these clubs. Each has their strengths and specialties ... and all have been
    serving their communities for MANY years!

    The Pasadena Radio Club isa ways down the 210 freeway from you ... but well worth a visit.
