JIM WEAVER, k8JE, SEEKS RE-ELECTION AS DIRECTOR
Fellow ARRL members, I am honored that you have allowed me to
serve you and Amateur Radio as your Great Lakes Division Director
the past three years. I appreciate your confidence in me and ask
you to re-elect me to three more years of progress.
Why vote for me? I've fulfilled every promise I've made to
you and have proven my leadership. You don't need to guess "what" I
am. My work on your behalf includes:
- Through my monthly "Weaver's Words" newsletter, I continually seek
your advice on key issues, inform you of the "full story" behind
these issues and demonstrate my belief that you are "The Reason ARRL
Is." I kept my word to you. Incidentally, my votes on the Board
have been completely consistent with the wishes expressed to me by
the overwhelming majority of you.
- Work by the Board, Staff and local leadership resulted in
victories by Division amateurs in nearly each instance our right to
install antenna structures was challenged. I kept my word to you.
- ARRL Staff has begun a unique, detailed project to reach the pool
of non-hams that will restore growth to the Amateur Radio Service.
The results of the project will be recruiting new and younger
amateurs, and keeping them active in our great Service. I kept my
word to you.
- My motion that established the ARRL Grassroots Legislative Action
Program is effectively promoting the needs of Amateur Radio. I kept
my word to you.
The future offers unforeseen challenges. Key among these challenges
is action resulting from FCC's decision to minimize its involvement
in Amateur Radio. I want to work on the Board to develop strategies
that to enable us to achieve the flexibility we need to guide our
great Service through coming successful years.
If re-elected, I will renew my commitment to resolving members'
concerns, to strengthen and to grow Amateur Radio and to continue to
promote the full significance of "Members, The Reason ARRL Is."
Thanks. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments
