ARLB004 ARRL Board to Take Strategic Tack at January Meeting

The ARRL Board of Directors will gather in Windsor, Connecticut,
January 17-18. With ARRL and IARU positions established for most
pending legislative issues and for the upcoming 2003 World
Radiocommunication Conference, the Board is poised to tackle
strategic planning for the next three to five years as one of its
top agenda topics.

''We need to look at our basic assumptions,'' said ARRL Chief
Executive Officer David Sumner, K1ZZ. ''We will do what we have to do
to ensure that Amateur Radio and the ARRL will be healthy 20 years
from now.'' At the January meeting, the Board will consider
recommendations as to how strategic planning should be conducted
later this year.

Sumner said ARRL Board members are interested in how the ARRL can
stimulate the entry of prospective amateurs from among the adult
population and explore ways to entice previously licensed
individuals back to Amateur Radio. He also noted that the Board will
be asked to ratify the ARRL budget for 2003, which is expected to be
the last year in a three-year period of planned deficit spending.

In addition to reports from ARRL President Jim Haynie, W5JBP, other
ARRL officers and standing committees, the Board is expected to hear
from technical, ad hoc and advisory committees.
