Southeastern Division Legislative Action Chair & HR 4969

Have you sent your Representative in Congress a letter asking for their
support by co-sponsoring H.R.4969? More information about H.R.4969,
including letter writing assistance can be found here:

About eight years or so ago the ARRL created a grassroots program for
lobbying Congress on issues affecting amateurs. While the outline for
the program exists, it hasn’t been operational in our Division. Given
H.R.4969 and other potential legislation on the horizon, Vice Director
Lee and I would like to get the program running. The first step is to
identify and appoint a member of the Division that is interested in
taking on the position of Division Legislative Action Chair (DLAC) and
has the time to be able to commit to it.

The DLAC appoints, trains and manages one or more Legislative Action
Coordinators (LAC) for each state in the Division. The two documents
available at describe the ARRL’s
grassroots program in detail and there is also a training video on that
web page.

The DLAC position can be done electronically via email, telephone, and
web meeting; the DLAC is not required to physically travel around the

If you are interested in the DLAC position, please email me at Please include the following in your email:

1) If you have prior experience that would help in the DLAC position
such as grassroots campaigning/organizing or management in a volunteer
organization (or whatever you believe would be beneficial)

2) Why are seeking the position

3) Why you are the best candidate for the position

Once we have a DLAC in place, we’ll begin to fill the other positions
in the structure.

The good news is that the DLAC is paid the same salary as the Division
Director! The bad news is that the salary is zero (the same as all of
the hard working Division and Section elected and appointed officials).

Thanks & 73 de Doug, K4AC, and Mike, AA6ML

ARRL Southeastern Division
Director: Doug Rehman, K4AC
