The WWV Centennial Special Event Station could use your help!
In order to make the WWV Centennial event a success, there are plenty of jobs to be done off the air. And we can use anyone wishing to lend a hand. There are planning tasks that can be done well before hand, setup work, support during the event, and tear-down. We would appreciate anyone helping with anything.
Below are the positions we're currently looking to fill, but keep checking back as we will be adding more as time goes on. All of these already have a dedicated volunteer leading the group, so you won't be out on your own.
Please consider volunteering your time for one of the committees. This special event station will only be successful with the help of the membership of NCARC. Consider this a great opportunity to get involved in your club!
Current open positions (sign up on the volunteer form):
