In January, the ARRL Board held its Annual Meeting in New Orleans. For the third consecutive year, Director Woolweaver was voted on by his peers to serve on the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is assigned specific responsibility for applying existing Board policy to make decisions in between Board meetings, as well as other specific tasks. The Executive Committee meets generally twice a year.
At the request of ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, Director Woolweaver will be chairing the new Ad-hoc Committee on Symbol Rate Rule Modernization after spearheading that discussion and motion through the Board during the January meeting. Additionally, Programs and Service’s Committee (PSC) Chairman David Norris, K5UZ tasked Director Woolweaver to chair a sub-committee on the enhancement of the Volunteer Examiner and Instructor programs and report back to the PSC in July.
Rounding out K5RAV’s ARRL service is his membership on the ARRL Centennial Committee and his elected membership to the ARRL Foundation Board of Directors.
Vice Director Stratton will continue to serve as the Board Liaison to the RF Safety Committee chaired by Dr. Gregory Lapin, N9GL
