ARRL Executive Committee Examines Regulatory Matters, Organizational Issues and More at September Meeting:

The ARRL Executive Committee (EC) held its second 2012 meeting Saturday, September 29 in Denver, Colorado. The EC is responsible for administering the League's affairs in between Board meetings. According to the ARRL Articles of Association, the EC meets during the intervals between meetings of the Board of Directors. It meets at the call of the President, but no less often than semi-annually; the last meeting of the EC was March 24, 2012.

At the meeting, the EC discussed the lack of visibility of Amateur Radio enforcement actions, the FCC's study of the Amateur Radio study mandated by Congress, the status to the followup of the report of the ARRL's National Broadband Plan Committee, the future implementation of the secondary MF allocation of 472-479 kHz and the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking -- expected, but yet not released at the time of the meeting -- that seeks to change the way Amateur Radio licenses are administered and granted, as well as a change to the TDMA rules. The Committee also discussed the upcoming Centennial Celebration and voted to approve conventions and affiliated radio clubs, and recognized new ARRL Life Members. Read more here
