Twenty nine members, and two prospective members, attended the 37th CARA AGM held on 12th December 2013 at the Brizen Young People’s Centre. The Reports from the Chairman and Treasurer were approved, and the following were elected to form the 2014 Committee: Chairman: Doug G4IGN. Deputy Chairman: Giles G0NXA. Secretary: Derek G3NKS. Treasurer: Peter G3YJE. Ordinary Committee Members: Malcolm G0TMP, Ron G3SZS, Simon G4SGI and Tom M6TWR.

On the recommendation of the Committee, the annual subscription remains at £13. Membership Renewal Forms will be sent to members shortly.
The best part of the AGM is the awarding and presentation of trophies, awards and certificates.
The John Holt G3GWW Award goes to a club member who during the previous year or two has performed exceptional work for the club and its members. This year it went to Matt Wilkinson, 2E0MDJ, for his work in developing the club website up to the recent changes.
The Bernard King G3CEG Cup is awarded to a club member for his/her noteworthy and praiseworthy on-the-air activities. This year it went to Martin Church, G4ENZ, for his success on the G100RSGB Leaderboard.
This year special certificates were also presented to the winners of the three sections of the CARA G100RSGB Challenge: Phone, CW and Data.
The evening concluded with an excellent buffet provided by Victoria and Margaret, to whom go our grateful thanks.
