The ARRL Board of Directors voted at its January meeting to appoint a Reapportionment Committee to study and make recommendations about possible changes in division boundaries. 

According to ARRL Hudson Division Director Mike Liscenco, N2YBB, division boundaries have been virtually unchanged since the ARRL was founded more than a century ago. The committee will "examine equalization both geographically and as to size of membership," according to Liscenco, and will report back with its recommendations next January.
