Newly Elected Section Managers Converge on Newington
This weekend, 12 Section Managers who are new -- or returning after a long absence -- to their post are in Newington for an orientation. 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 Supervisor of the ARRL Field Organization Team Steve Ewald, WV1X. "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's position, and the SMs are able to visit with ARRL Headquarters staff members and learn more about the many programs that ARRL supports. The Workshop sessions are presented by several ARRL Headquarter staff members who are experts in their respective areas."

Rowe, N5XFW; Eastern Massachusetts Section Manager Mike Neilsen, W1MPN; Georgia Section Manager Gene Clark, W4AYK; Iowa Section Manager Tom Brehmer, N0LOH; Los Angeles Section Manager David Greenhut, N6HD; New York City-Long Island Section Manager Mike Lisenco, N2YBB; North Texas Section Manager Jay Urish, W5GM; Oklahoma Section Manager Dean Fekan, KL7MA; San Joaquin Valley Section Manager Dan Pruitt, AE6SX; Southern New Jersey Section Manager George Strayline, W2GSS; South Texas Section Manager Lee Cooper, W5LHC, and Wyoming Section Manager Garth Crowe, N7XKT, are in attendance.
