    This is what I've seen as well. I guess if someone is known by a single member to be a person of less than savory character, it gives them an opportunity to speak up. However, I've never seen anything but unanimous 'Yea' from the voting members.

    If a person is a known lid or troublemaker, it is easier to keep him out of a club than remove him later. Why would you want someone in your club that you knew would create a problem, or reflect badly on the group as a whole?

    This criteria seems rather subjective.

    Most well written bylaws allow the board of private clubs to revoke membership of any person it does not want on the club membership roles for specific reasons.

    I would like to hear from club board members, why new members need to be voted in.

    P.S. I am not intending to be an arse about it; I am genuinely curious.

    I just explained it. It is a way to keep out troublemakers. And it works.

    And as for web pages, they are very easy to do. I learned from scratch how to do html. I did a drive-in movie theater site with over 2,000 html pages. I just worked on it as I had time.

    Very nice website - wow!

    Except the biggest text, in the most prominent place, is about the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site so at first I thought it wasn't a ham radio site... I would change that.

    Well if you hit the browser REFRESH button a new header appears and along the right side of the menu, five random articles appear!

    The refresh button facilitates the site to work with different browsers. Our club has a pretty good web presence, and for a senior citizen, the dues are $12. http://w4nc.com check it out

    Clubs, and other organizations that have a locality are an odd thing in the age of social media. Obviously before the Internet, the way you got involved in a club activity was to meet in person, or get a monthly newsletter or something. Now, well you don't have to. Are clubs necessary in the age of Facebook?

    In the SE PA region we have a number of great legacy clubs. Frankford Radio Club & PackRats are two. You can belong, but you lose a lot if you don't get to a couple of meetings or participate in something like Field Day.

    And that said, I don't belong to a club. Why? I don't have a good answer. I should, and I might but so far I haven't. Hmmm... I'm pontificating about this on Ham social media instead of waiting to go to a meeting.


    Yup. A lot of that lately.
