About HOTARCHOTARC • P.O. Box 32 • Waco, TX 76703-0032
The Heart O' Texas Amateur Radio Club (HOTARC) is a non-profit corporation chartered by the State of Texas and affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the North Texas Section (NTX), District 6 (colored brown on the map here). Membership is open to licensed amateur radio operators and others with an interest in amateur radio. We are primarily a service-oriented organization: providing storm-spotting for the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth, communications support for area special events, and educational programs for area schools and youth organizations, license classes, and so forth. You are welcome to contact any of the Officers or Directors (see below) or for further information. Or, ready to join our Club? See application below ⇓.
2019 Club Officers and Directors
HOTARC's Board of Directors consists of the Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary), the Past President, and three Directors. All officers are elected to one-year terms by the general membership. Directors are elected to three-year terms, with one new Director elected every year. (See the expiration years for each Director above.)
Officers and Directors must be Full Members of HOTARC. All are elected by a simple majority vote of the members present at the Annual Meeting—the last meeting of the year. See our bylaws (links below) for more details.
HOTARC's Full Members hold a current amateur radio license from the FCC, have full voting rights in Club business, and can hold elected or appointed positions (Officer, Director, or Chair positions) in the Club. Associate Members, Family Members, and Lifetime Members are not permitted to vote or hold office, and need not hold a current amateur radio license. Family Members and Lifetime Members are exempt from annual dues. Members of all types are listed in the Club Directory, subscribed to the Club's email list, and encouraged to participate in Club events and activities.
