Announcement Date: July 22, 2014
The ARRL has a dearth of data about what its Field Organization is doing. Some large part of that is due to an antiquated method of gathering information. K4AC saw an opportunity to make reporting easier for the Field Organization members while also generating useful data for the organization by implementing web based reporting forms. The below motion was made and approved by the Board.
WHEREAS the central gathering of information on Amateur Radio activities involving Field Organization volunteers is vitally important for the League to be able to educate and inform the public of our contributions, and to assess program success;
THEREFORE the ARRL Board of Directors directs staff to work with the Programs & Services Committee to design and implement a web based reporting system to gather information on activities performed by field volunteers. The first phase of the reporting system should be implemented during 2015.
