NV9L for Central Division Director

I am running for the ARRL Central Division Director. I need your help to get my message out. ***UPDATE*** There are 9897 members and 191 clubs in the Central Division. That is a lot of postage! Any size donation will be greatly appreciated. Any funds left over from my campaign will be donated to the amateur radio Yasme Foundation http://www.yasme.org/. More about me and my position below and on nv9l.com

I was licensed in 2006. I was very active in several local clubs as well as the Kenosha County ARES group. I was recently part of the Force of 50 that went to Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria. I enjoy DXing and contesting, but feel that all aspects of this hobby should be well represented. We’re all on the same team; our love of amateur radio.  I was honored this year as “Amateur of the Year” at Dayton’s Hamvention. I’m an ARRL Life and Maxim member because I know the value they bring to help protect and promote this incredible hobby. 

I’m the Controller for a large conglomerate of 16 companies with an annual revenue of $60,000,000 and 300+ employees. I’m 1 of 6 in upper senior management. I am very goal driven, organized, and take a logical approach in everything I do. My financial team is one of the most efficient and lean, as well as the happiest.  

I am excited about focusing on membership as I see the membership numbers on the decline. I want to make sure all newly licensed or inactive hams are more embraced into this hobby. I know that the success of a ham's participation is a direct result of the local clubs and ARES groups, so I want to make sure local clubs thrive. 

Because the ARRL is a member driven organization, I believe the ARRL needs to be more transparent. I will vote to help give you a voice and view in what we do. 

Please vote for me this October and let’s make sure that the ARRL best represents its members and make the Central Division the best possible!
