IRA Delegate check-ins and any dues payments will start at 9:00 AM, with the meeting starting at 10:00 AM sharp. When dues are paid in advance the check-in process is quicker and eliminates much of the delay. As in the past we anticipate the meeting to conclude around 1:00 PM.

An IRA "Membership Information" form on file listing the delegates (max of two) and signed by the president and/or trustee and showing paid up dues for 2024 are all that are needed to vote at the meeting.

Every vote is important so that your association can effectively represent you in the multi-faceted problems facing the repeater owners of the country and Illinois in particular. Therefore, if you cannot attend this meeting and have no delegate in mind, we suggest that you appoint one of the current officers or directors to be your delegate. If you later decide to  attend  the meeting the presence of the trustee and/or president suspends any previous delegate appointment and/or written proxy.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to have a subject placed on the agenda please contact the Secretary/Treasurer at the address below or the IRA President.

The IRA President, Kermit Carlson, W9XA sent a letter to all IRA Holders of Coordination, Trustees, Technical and Club Contacts on February 12, 2024 about the upcoming 2024 IRA Meeting.  Please click HERE for a link to it.
