Non-board members present at board meetings that are special and important to CJMQ:
Station Manager - David Teasdale
David has an amateur radio license and is the key to CJMQ's success. Without David, there would literally be no station. David volunteers 150% of his time to the station. Even though he is retired, he chooses to volunteer as a full-time station manager. David is a critical asset to CJMQ. His dedication, motivation and commitment are unsurpassed. As a volunteer, David is irreplaceable. His presence at meetings is fundamental to the success of the station.
We would like to thank Maureen for her many years of volunteer work taking minutes at our board meetings. For many years, no one was interested in being secretary for the board, so Maureen volunteered to do the job (and an excellent job she did!) So thank you very much, Maureen! Your dedication to the board will not be forgotten.
