Some say the ARRL is not transparent

Recall Petition for the ARRL Southeastern Division Director is under way.

The Issue: Members of the Southeastern Division of the ARRL were told there would be an election for a new director this fall only to have a week later the ARRL declared one individual elected without any explanation or input from the members of the division.

The Proposal: To utilize the “petition for recall of a director” per article 7 of the articles of association of the ARRL. This will give the members of the Southeastern Division a vote on their representation which is been denied. Members can either vote “no” on the removal of the director “declared elected”, making that person the legitimate representative of the division. Or the members can vote “yes” and that person will be removed at which point the president of the ARRL will appoint someone else, the vice director.

We will be gathering signatures at various gathering over the next couple of months. Visit our website and Facebook pages foe locations and discussions:
