From Roar Webmaster Bill Main VK4ZD
Hi Bill
I have updated the ROAR website for this year, but I still need the correct info to go on the Office Bearers page.
I have added a link on the home page to the constitution so nobody should be able to say they can't find it.

(Webmaster Note: - ROAR President John Maier has now provided the updated info for the Office Bearers page.)
