Via the ARRL: HamXposition to Host ARRL New England and Hudson Division Conventions

In what may be a “first,” the Northeast HamXposition will host both the ARRL New England and Hudson Division conventions this year. HamXposition takes place August 26 – 28, 2022, in Marlborough, Massachusetts, and tickets will become available May 1.

Formerly known as “Boxboro,” the New England Division Convention features a Saturday morning keynote address, Friday and Saturday evening banquets with guest speakers, a large outdoor flea market, and ample indoor vendor space. Proceeds from the convention will benefit scholarships for both New England and Hudson Division students. Volunteers and speakers will be drawn from both Divisions. Other details will be worked out as things progress.

“It certainly has been a while since the Hudson Division has had a convention,” said ARRL Hudson Division Director Ria Jairam, N2RJ. “By joining forces with the New England Division for a joint convention, we can bring back a sense of nostalgia and community.”

New ARRL New England Division Director Fred Kemmerer, AB1OC, said, “We are excited to have the Hudson Division join with New England to support and grow the 2022 HamXposition event.” Kemmerer called it “a great opportunity to expand HamXposition participation and programs, and [to] work to provide support for the scholarships to young hams in both Divisions.”
