I wanted to share my thoughts about how we can grow membership in the ARRL. This clip is from the ARRL New England Division Candidate Forum which was part of the Northeast HamXposition. You can watch the full Candidate Forum video here.
The three candidates who are running to become the next New England Division Director participated in a Candidates Forum at the Northeast HamXpostion in Marlborough, MA recently. The Candidate Forum was moderated by Don Arthur, K1DCA. Thanks to Jim Palmer, KB1KQW for recording and producing the video of the Candidate Forum.
Don asked a series of thoughtful questions that enabled those present to learn what each candidate was about and how they planned to take the ARRL and the Amateur Radio Service forward into the future. The candidates did not know what Don’s questions would be in advance.
I hope that you will take the time to watch the video to learn about my plans as your Director.
New England ARRL members will be sent their ballots by mail on October 1st. Ballots are due back to due back at ARRL HQ no later than 12:00 pm on November 19th.
I held the first of what I hope will be many Town Hall Meetings with Hams in New England last evening.
I was joined by a panel of Hams who are supporting my campaign and who are helping me to develop plans for the work I will do as ARRL New England Division Director.
After a brief introduction, we spent the evening answering questions from the folks who joined us for the Town Hall.
We recorded the Town Hall Meeting and I wanted to share it with our readers here. I would welcome the opportunity to hear your views and answer any additional questions that you might have. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
