The Fédération des clubs radioamateurs du Québec (RAQI) held its annual meeting (AGM) on Saturday May 25, 2019 at the Hotel le Dauphin in Drummondville. Prior to the general meeting a meeting of the Clubs Consultative Committee (CCC) took place. At the CCC meeting the committee elected 7 members to sit on the board of directors of the federation. In the afternoon we proceeded to the annual general meeting. Several matters were discussed and we adopted the financial statements as well as all of the items usually coming before an annual meeting.

In addition, during the AGM the members elected 4 others to sit on the federation's board of directors. For the first time in our young history the board of directors is complete, that is to say with 11 members. Many persons attended the general meeting as well as others present by internet.

For the member clubs who were not able to attend a booklet will be sent in which they can consult the various documents of the federation which were tabled at the annual meeting.
