WSARC is using Google’s G Suite as a method of communication, group discussions and file sharing. Paid members of WSARC will receive a WSARC email address and access to these functions.

If you are a paid member and have not received your WSARC email (e.g., your-call-sign@westseattearc.org), request an email account here.

Once you receive your club email account, follow these instructions:
1. Log into your WSARC email account to access the G Suite Application (besides email and Groups, G Suite also offers: document sharing for text, spreadsheets, slides, and forms; calendar; chat; and video conferencing).
2.  Click on the Google Apps icon (3 x 3 box of small squares) in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
3.  Click on “More” icon at the bottom of the list of apps,  so the “Groups” icon appears.
4.  Double click on the “Groups” icon and select “My groups.” 
      The screen will display the following info:   My groups     Browse all
