Reminder Post

Current Excutive Members: no fee for 2020

It’s been a tough year for flying! Much like our east-coast friends, we spent the fall, winter, and spring building rockets instead of flying them due to unstable weather. As a way of saying “Thanks” to all of our Executive Members, ROC is providing FREE Executive Memberships for 2020 to all of our existing Executive Members.

It’s simple, if you are a current, paid Executive Member at the end of this year, December 31st, 2019, then you’ll automatically get 2020 for free! That’s $60 you can spend on rocket gear, motors, or whatever you want!

Detailed Rules:
1. If you paid for a 2019 Membership already, including those that paid in the last three months of 2018, you will automatically be renewed for 2020. There’s nothing to do. To check your current membership status, log-in at: https://roc.wildapricot.org/ or ask at registration.

2. If you join as an Executive member ($60) between now and December 31, 2019, you will receive all of 2020 for free. Join here: https://roc.wildapricot.org/

3. Family membership policy remains unaffected.
4. Non-member fees remain unaffected.
5. Pre-registered Youth Group fees remain unaffected.

Board of Director Self-Nominations Are Open

It’s that time of year folks! If you’ve ever wondered about the “behind the scenes” of your club, wanted to become more involved in club decision making, simply want to “pay it forward” or just want to learn more about rocketry then consider self-nominating for a seat on the ROC Board of Directors.

There are three full term (three year) Director seats up for election this year. Any adult ROC member in good standing can self-nominate by writing a Statement of Self-Nomination and short bio. Make sure to include a photo. Please send to: bigbearrockets@cox.net . The deadline for self-nomination is August 31st, 2019 at 11:59 PM. Ballots will be cast electronically via the Wild Apricot Membership Portal during Sept and Oct. Results of the election will be announced during the Annual Members Meeting November 9th, 2018 at ROCstock. If elected, your annual club fees are waived.

Please consider running for a Board of Director seat. It’s a great way to become more involved and have fun while making a difference in the hobby we all love so much!
