ARRL Issues "White Paper" on Proposed Governance Changes

The ARRL has issued a "white paper" to offer background and context to proposed changes in its Articles of Association and By-Laws, as well as the so-called "code of conduct" for directors and vice directors. It essentially says that proposed changes regarding personal liability of directors, vice directors and officers are needed to bring the wording into compliance with Connecticut state law; and that it wants to add ARRL's informal name, "ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio," to the formal name of American Radio Relay League, Inc., that is already in those documents.
