RCA'S SUSTAINING CORPORATE SPONSORS

Tom Sorley Memorial Fund Established

Tom Sorley was an RCA member (since 2011) and was the recipient of NPSTC’s Richard DeMello award in 2015.  Tom was Chair of the FirstNet Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC), and was also Deputy CIO and Deputy Director of IT for the city of Houston TX.   As a result of these positions and other work that he did over his career, Tom was well known in public safety communications circles.

Sadly Tom passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 3, 2018.

His widow has very generously requested that a memorial fund be set up in his name, with the proceeds going to the Radio Club of America.

The donation form can be found here, and you can check off the form near the bottom right under “Tom Sorley Memorial Fund to RCA”.

Tom’s Silent Key listing on the RCA Website can be found here, and included is a link to his obituary.

(Note:  Donations to RCA may be tax-deductible in the U.S. because RCA is classified as a 501c3 organization by the IRS.  However each individual must determine the deduct-ability based on their own tax situation.)
