|How BARK Was Formed
The Bethel Amateur Radio Klub was started in October of 2007 when a group of local amateur radio operators got together for coffee at Yolanda's restaurant and decided to organize a local Amateur Radio club. In a typical rural Alaska style the Officers were elected by a show of hands. The newly elected President, WL7BCT, handed out assignments and BARK was officially established. The a draft set of Bylaws was approved and Articles of Incorporation were filed several months later. In May of 2008 another election was held and a Board of Directors were appointed. Charter members at the first meeting were: WL7BCT, KL1VA, AL1F, KL2AU (KL7AED), KL7KT, KM4KX(KL7II), KL7IOL and N5RMJ.
The Current BARK officers and Board of Directors are:
Mark Springer, WL7BCT, President
Joe Seibert, AL1F, Vice-President
Ken Eggelston, NL7SP, Treasurer
Norman Ayagalria, KL2IW, Secretary
Mona Jensen, KL2LA, Board of Directors
