Subject: New England Division Cabinet Meeting
Date: Saturday, January 8, 2005
I’d like to invite you to the ARRL New England Division Cabinet meeting on Saturday, January 8, 2005 in Springfield MA. We usually have 30+ people attending from clubs across New England – this will be an opportunity for you to provide direct input to the ARRL on policy issues. The meeting will run from 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM, with a break for lunch at noon – and as in the past we’re asking for your contribution of $15 to help cover some of the cost for breaks and for lunch.
There is an ARRL Board meeting scheduled for January 21-22 – this will give us a chance to talk about issues you think the Board should be considering. What would you like to see on the agenda for the meeting?
The meeting will be at the Sheraton Springfield Hotel (413-781-1010) at One Monarch Place in Springfield MA (If you like basketball, it’s real close to the new Basketball Hall of Fame). If you have to travel a long distance and want to stay for the night, the hotel has offered us rooms for $89 if reserved by December 29th. Directions are here:
Please let me know by December 31st (earlier is better!) if you will be coming so we can plan for a big enough room and enough food. Park in the hotel parking area – we’ll cover the costs. Both Vice Director Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF, and I are looking forward to seeing you there!
