+ Newly Elected Section Managers to Converge in Newington
This weekend, five newly elected or appointed Section Managers will be in Newington for an orientation workshop. The primary purposes of the workshop sessions are to share ideas and to provide basic administrative, management, leadership and motivational training.
"The Section Manager Workshop is an orientation and training event for new Section Managers that have come on board within the last year or so," said ARRL Field Organization Team Supervisor Steve Ewald, WV1X. "The ARRL has conducted this training each year at HQ for the past several years, and it has been well received by past participants. The Membership and Volunteer Programs Department Staff and its Field Organization Team are the lead coordinators of the event. We also cover the responsibilities and functions of the Section Manager position, and the SMs are able to visit with ARRL Headquarters staff members and learn more about the many programs that the ARRL supports. The workshop sessions are presented by several ARRL Headquarters staff members who are experts in their respective areas."
The following five Section Managers are attending the orientation workshop: Alabama Section Manager David Drummond, W4MD; Arkansas Section Manager Dale Temple, W5RXU; Colorado Section Manager Jack Ciaccia, WM0G; Western New York Section Manager Steve Ryan, N2ITF, and West Texas Section Manager Bill Roberts, W5NPR. Drummond, Temple, Ciaccia and Roberts began their terms in 2011, while Ryan began his 2010.
