“New” Belize Amateur Radio Club Admitted to IARU Membership

The member-societies of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) have approved a proposal to admit a new representative of the radio amateurs of Belize to IARU membership. As of the deadline for voting, 9 May 2017, 77 member-societies had voted in favor of admitting the Belize Amateur Radio Club (BARC) with none opposed. There were no abstentions. The affirmative votes of 55 member-societies were required for approval.

Belize previously was represented in the IARU by another organization of the same name. Once the IARU Administrative Council determined that this earlier organization no longer existed, IARU Region 2 accepted an application for membership from the new BARC and confirmed that it satisfied the requirements of the IARU Constitution and Bylaws.

The officers of BARC are:
Emil Rodriguez, V31ER, President
Dr. Andre T. Scholz, V31DL, Vice President and IARU Liaison
Steven Harp, V31SH, Secretary
