NeARES has officially became a non-profit corporation registered with the Secretary of State in Nebraska. It’s taken some time to complete all task’s but, we’re done and can move forward with our mission and goals. We are a member less organization as we don’t want to be competitive with any other like organization within the Section of Nebraska. Our goal is to bring like organizations together to form a large scale statewide team in support of ARES, SkyWarn and other events that may come. Our mission is based solely on philanthropy. Through the use and distribution of  donated funds and materials to smaller organizations where a need is present, acting as technical advisers and assisting those organizations where possible, we hope to achieve our goals in building the large scale statewide network of teams.

The purpose of the corporation is the advancement of the science of electronic communication through the education and instruction of its members and others, including but not limited to, owning and operating an amateur radio station or stations and providing emergency communication services to city, county, state and Federal authorities, American Red Cross, and other duly constituted charitable, educational or public authorities. No part of its income or net earnings are to inure to the benefit of or be distributable to its members, directors or officers or to any private individual. The corporation shall not issue any stock. To assist like organizations as technical advisors and assistants where needed in the implementation and installation of communications equipment allowing said organization to fulfill volunteer duties in a manner prescribed by the ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Strategic Plan. This can include the repurposing of donated communications equipment to said organizations where funding is limited and a real need is demonstrable.
