ARRL Board elects new CEO

ARRL Board elects new CEO

KB6NU's Ham Radio Blog - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 12:55pm

This morning, the ARRL announced the election of our new CEO, Howard E. Michel, WB2ITX, of Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He will start on October 15. Michel is currently Chief Technology Officer at UBTECH Education, and Senior Vice President of UBTECH Robotics, a $5 billion Shenzhen, China, artificial intelligence and robotics company.

A BIG plus is that Michel has served as CEO of a member-based organization. In 2015, Michel was the volunteer president and CEO of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

What I really like was this quote:

In any large membership-led organization such as ARRL, its members and volunteers are its greatest asset, and a good staff-volunteer relationship is crucial to its success,” Michel said. “I intend to build on this relationship and multiply and amplify the efforts of both staff and volunteers in furthering ARRL’s goals to advance the art, science, and enjoyment of Amateur Radio.

As I’ve said before, we have a lot of talented people in the ARRL, and the ARRL, and amateur radio in general, would be a lot better off if we learned how to take advantage of that talent.
