Additional Places Opened for ARRL Centennial Convention Training Track Courses
ARRL Centennial Convention Program and Forum Chairman Dan Henderson, N1ND, reported this week that additional places have been made available for some of the ARRL Centennial Convention “Thursday Training Track” courses on July 17 — the Convention’s opening day. Registration for other courses is reaching its limit, he added.
“The ‘Contest University,’ ‘DX University,’ and ‘Public Service Communications Academy’ already have maxed out their original 100-participant cap,” Henderson said. “We have opened additional seats in all three of those tracks.”
The ARRL National Centennial Convention will take place Thursday, July 17, through Saturday, July 19, at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. Thousands of members and friends of ARRL are expected to be on hand to help the League celebrate its first 100 years of “Advancing the Art and Science of Radio.”
Henderson said the “RFI-101,” “Leadership and Training Tools for Amateur Radio,” and “Introduction to Amateur Satellites” classes now are more than half full. He encouraged anyone interested to register soon, in order to assure a place in the class.
He pointed out that prospective students will not be able to register at the convention for any of the Thursday Training Track courses. “It is advanced registration only for Thursday,” he said. All convention registrants who sign up for a Thursday Training Track may attend the luncheon, which will be held in the ARRL Centennial Ballroom. The luncheon is included as part of the registration fee. Thursday’s lunch will feature ARRL First ARRL Vice President, Rick Roderick, K5UR.
A listing of all ARRL Centennial National Convention forums and presenters is available on the ARRL website.
