The ARRL Central
ARRL's structure divides the United States into 15 ARRL Divisions. Every
three years the ARRL full members in each of these Divisions elect a Director
and a Vice Director to represent them on the League's Board of Directors.
The Board determines the policies of the League, which are carried out
by the Headquarters staff. A Director's function is principally policymaking
at the highest level. Each division's Director and Vice Director represent
their Division on ARRL policy matters. If you have a question or comment
about League policies, contact your Central Division
representatives by E-Mail or regular mail at the addresses shown
