Five New Section Managers to Meet in Newington for Training
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 Headquarter staff members who are experts in their respective areas."
The following five Section Managers are attending the orientation workshop: Nebraska Section Manager Art Zygielbaum, K0AIZ; North Carolina Section Manager Bill Morine, N2COP; Oklahoma Section Manager Kevin O’Dell, N0IRW; South Carolina Section Manager Marc Tarplee, N4UPF, and Southern Florida Section Manager David Fowler, K4DLF. Zygielbaum, Morine and Tarplee are current Section Managers; O’Dell and Fowler begin their terms October 1.
