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
**Perhaps the most common response on all of these lists is, "You should contact your Director," usually offered by another Director.  SM's are mentioned but rarely.  Unfortunately, ARRL's Field Organization is a relic from the 20's and 30's, a time when the "Relay" in "American Radio Relay League" actually meant something.

**Based on my contacts with new hams, the Field Organization is just one of the irrelevancies of ARRL, if they even know about it.

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
**That would be a loss, but it is your choice.  I keep wondering when/if this [and the several other lists] can actually get to discussion.  For the most part, there is little if any back and forth conversation about a single topic.  I've posted ideas for some very serious changes to re-invent ARRL for the 21st Century [e.g. change the governing documents to eliminate the regional structure of today and elect the 15 BoD positions at large], none of which get much ... or any ... direct response.
