The Citrus Belt Amateur Radio Club Board of Directors will evaluate each request for membership and assistance as requested in order to provide such assistance in an appropriate and timely manner. All people interested in amateur radio are welcome at all club activities regardless of age, race, gender, ability, or any other factor.
