Hello, I'm Bob Burns AK9R and I'm your new ARRL Indiana Section Manager. I've been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1991 and an ARRL Life Member since 2002. Over those years, I've had many positions and done many things in amateur radio, so I think I bring a wide range of experience to the position.
Before I continue, a big thank you to our out-going Section Manager, Jimmy Merry KC9RPX, who served Indiana amateur radio operators for the past four years.
My goals as Section Manager are to:
* Engage Indiana amateur radio operators to help them achieve their goals in amateur radio.
* Empower Indiana amateur radio clubs to serve their members with interesting activities and programs.
* Enable Indiana ARES teams and volunteers to be relevant, resilient, and ready to serve the auxiliary communications needs of their served agencies.
* Execute the Section Manager responsibilities to recruit, appoint, and supervise section-level staff; maintain timely communications with Indiana ARRL members; and make personal visits to clubs, hamfests, and conventions.
The key, of course, is how to accomplish those goals and that's what I, along with my section staff, will be working on for the next few months.
