Re: Disappointed in Triple Play "plaque"


This type of group is very common place in online gaming to allow people to vent with very little real interaction from the gaming company or people that can actually do anything.  Most people tire of it and move on to other games or just stop providing feedback.

I agree where are the other directors?  Do they care?  Where it the ARRL staff?  Do they care?  Do they just not have time to look?  The list was dead for weeks, maybe they were never told to look or that this place exists?

Herein lies the fundamental problem ... this and "ARRL Contesting" were billed as "on-line discussion groups" with HQ offices.  Ria is the only ARRL rep who frequents these lists, and the various HQ offices [Awards is but one] do not, or if they do, they lurk, don't speak, and apparently don't act on what they see.  If things change as a result of member input, even glacially, Ria gets all the credit, at least in my notebook.  If we elected our Board of Directors at large, as I believe we should two decades into the 21st century, I'd cast my ballot for her in a heartbeat.

"Contact your Director," a mantra we all hear, is perpetuating the long-standing problem that, "What happens in Newington stays in Newington."  We elect our Board to govern the Corporation, not to fix operational problems.  Part of governance is employing the right leader.  After two seriously failed attempts, a decade later I think they have gotten it right, and I believe change will happen.  The pace just needs to be picked up dramatically.  Having the Awards Department active on this discussion group would be a huge improvement.

 I think you meant April 2021 and not April 2020. Staff was not in the building in April 2020.

And you are right - it was changed by headquarters without member input. Now we are reversing that based on member input. 

I will not go into further details other than there is new management in that department.
