The mission of the VDEM Amateur Radio Communications Auxiliary (ARCA) is to develop and maintain the leadership and organizational structure necessary to provide radio communications support to community agencies and the people in and around the Commonwealth of Virginia whenever we are called to do so by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Virginia Department of Emergency Management Emergency Operations Center.
