ARRL Organization Structure
ARRL is a representative democracy — its members control its policies through the power of the ballot.
The ARRL Articles of Association and By-laws give direct responsibility to set ARRL policy to an elected Board of Directors. Fifteen Directors are elected on a regional basis, one per ARRL Division, to serve three year terms. Directors receive no monetary compensation for their service, although they are eligible to be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses incurred in the performance of their duties. ARRL Officers are chosen by the Directors.
Each Director has a Vice Director to assist him or her. Vice Directors, also elected by ARRL members in each Division, fill in for Directors as needed. Section Managers (SMs) are elected to two year terms by the ARRL members in their sections. In turn, each SM has a number of active and enthusiastic hams (Field Organization) to help conduct Section business.
Additional information can be read on the ARRL Policy on Board Governance and Conduct of Members of the Board of Directors and Vice Director.
