September brought examinees and plenty of camaraderie to our VE Program.  With that, here are some numbers as of 11:59pm Alaska Time on Thursday, September 30th, 2021:

Number of examinees tested as of September 30th, 2021:    926
Number of exam sessions in September 2021:    10
Total number of examinations administered since December 2020:    1,067

We are well on our way to reaching our 1,000th examinee!  As of this writing, we anticipate reaching this goal in the next four to six weeks.  The Aurora Amateur Radio Group looks forward to reaching this milestone.  This milestone comes as a result of a very dedicated group of Volunteer Examiners and the amazing leadership that has helped carry the program forward.

As we look ahead to the month of October, we look forward to serving the under served using an incredible exam platform that is still evolving.  As we approach the holiday season, our focus on becoming a new VEC still remains in the spotlight.  For those who have supported us with financial contributions, we thank you!  It means a lot to us.

To those who have remained faithful in their service to our VE program, your efforts are appreciated more than you will ever know.  I bid a heartfelt thank you to all who are serving in our VE Program!
