Re: Forum Issue?


 

Someone could possibly convince me to not Un subscribe to this Group, or not :)

Why am I considering Unsubscribe, because it is obvious I am only hear to listen
as an SM has no meaningful input
based I what I have seen from feedback
members only want addressed by Directors or ARRL Staff
in the last thread that I chose to Mute myself out of

I feel I should only contribute where it is useful
Apologies for the wasted bandwidth
and I will listen for one or two more rounds

Cheers!

We do not govern staff directly.

We set policy and the CEO is responsible for implementation. He then
delegates to department managers who then delegate to staff.

ARRL employee David Isgur was assigned the ownership of the new "open to everyone" online groups when the "Communications with Members" Committee was disbanded by the Board of Directors. His responsibilities included informing new Directors of the existence of these groups, and encouraging ARRL Directors, Executives, Managers, and Staff to actively participate in them. Mr. Isgur left the ARRL sometime after the Committee was disbanded. Either no one from the ARRL debriefed him to understand his responsibilities, or he was debriefed but his responsibilities were not assigned one or more ARRL staff members, or  the ARRL staff members to whom his responsibilities were assigned have failed to execute them; whichever, a tour-de-force of management incompetence.

The ARRL has more competent volunteers than it knows what to do with, and so can afford to demotivate them without thinking about it. Well done, sir!
