Via the ARRL: ARRL Delegates Attend IARU Region 2 General Assembly

An ARRL delegation, led by President Rick Roderick, K5UR (Head of Delegation), and including Chief Executive Officer David Minster, NA2AA, attended the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Region 2 General Assembly that began Monday, October 31, 2022 and concluded Friday, November 4, 2022. ARRL International Affairs Vice President Rod Stafford, W6ROD, also participated, serving as the Area B Director for Region 2.

The triennial General Assembly is the formal decision-making body of IARU Region 2, comprising The Americas, and delegates are the representatives of each member-society. The President of IARU Region 2 is Ramón Santoyo, XE1KK.

The meetings began on October 31 with five virtual evening sessions that each lasted approximately 3 hours each. The virtual meetings were necessary because of travel concerns due to COVID-19.

At the meetings the delegates reviewed challenges to amateur radio, debated proposals from member-societies, and received reports from coordinators and elected volunteers. The Guayaquil Radio Club was selected to host the next General Assembly in 2025 in Ecuador.
