President’s Message: Important – ARRL Governance and Code of Conduct

Fellow BRARA Members:

You may have heard about recent problems at ARRL, either from CQ Magazine, other hams, or friends.  Indeed, in the last year or so a major set of changes has been underway in how ARRL governance is organized, and it is not good for the general membership of the League.  The current ARRL management has become increasingly secret in its actions, behaving very much unlike the member-based service organization we have all known ARRL to be over the last century.  Many clubs have written letters to ARRL Directors, Vice-Directors and officers, as have many hundreds of individuals.  If there is any doubt about the extent of the problem, just go to www.myarrlvoice.org and read some of the various club letters.  From there you can also send a personal message to all Directors, which I would strongly encourage.  For our part, today I have sent the letter shown below to ARRL on behalf of the Directors, officers and members of BRARA.  Our goal is to help ARRL avoid becoming a closed organization to its membership.  73, Bruce KO4XL
