What is the ARRL?

The ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the United States.  Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim as The American Radio Relay League, ARRL is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs.  The ARRL is defined by five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership.

How is the ARRL organized?

The ARRL is divided in to 71 administrative sections across the United States and its territories.  The ARRL membership in each section elects a Section Manager every 2 years.  The Section Manager is responsible for managing the ARRL Field Organization programs in their respective sections.  The Section Manager appoints coordinators or section staff to help manage the programs.  Be sure to check out the "Meet the Section Staff" to learn more about the different programs.
