Re: As a New or even Old Timer.... Do you know who your ARRL Section Manger is? Have you ever met them?
Frank, excellent question and Idea
here is my reply.....
First very respectively I ask...... How does Organizing a Club President Council in a Section…meeting monthly by Zoom for < 30 minutes differ from having a virtual round table discussion with club officers in the section bimonthly differ from you excellent idea, other than monthly Iam open to modifing what I do.
On the second part.....
Organizing volunteers is far, far different than management and leadership in an employment situation. How much actual leadership training do SMs get on their ARRL orientation meeting? The answer is None !!!
I learned leadership while in the United States Airforce at The Strategic Air Command Non Comissioned Officer's Academy
and while leading men and wommen while serving in a combat zones (Twice)
The ARRL SM Indoctination consist of what to do and not do while you are a Section Manager
there are zero real tips on how to best serve our members. In fact for the last 4 sessions,maybe longer they have been doing these as Zoom conferences - which I am totaly against for many reasons.
I really feel they should pick two SM's from across the Country
to speak about how they best serve their members
with emphasis on face to face meeting with fellow ARRL members in their sections
Thank you for having this conversation with me and anyone can do this with me anytime here or direct to my email
