Re: Challenge certificate
+ AA6YQ comments below
Thanks for posting…here’s the phrase that should mean that ARRL staff monitor and participate in each of these Forums:
“The new groups are aimed at enhancing communication among ARRL leadership, staff, members, and prospective members, in a manner that enables timely updates and collegial discussion.”
Has this mission been forgotten/abandoned?
+ My take:
1. ARRL staff members like Bart W9JJ and committee members like Steve N4JQQ who were inclined to engage with members and prospective members are using these online Forums to do so; staff and committee members who weren't so inclined, don't.
2. Only two or three Board members have ever engaged in these Forums.
3. Bob W5OV, the ARRL's Director of Operations, recently announced on the ARRL-LoTW Forum that protracted criticism of the ARRL is forbidden. This is antithetical to the rationale for creating these online groups.
