RAC Bulletin 2011-021E – RAC ARES Section Restructuring Committee.
During 2010, RAC established the Field Organization Review Project under the leadership of Doug Mercer VO1DM, Vice President of Field Services and with a committee of Section Managers and other volunteers reviewed the current Field Organization model and made certain observations which were reviewed by the Directors and Executive during the October 2010 vision/mission session in Ottawa.
In May 2011 a new regional model was approved by the Board which expanded the role of the regions from ARES only to a complete model with a wide and complete range of responsibilities. Further to this implementation came the realization that further changes may be necessary in our larger regions such as Ontario.
To improve representation to our members and to ensure that the task of our Section Managers is realistic in terms of member access and service, the RAC Section Restructuring Commission has been formed with the task of how best we can serve our membership. The Commission will determine the most effective number of Section Managers and other positions and any further regional such divisions which may be required. The final report is expected by November 2011, with implementation in 2012.
Members of the Commission are Bill Unger VE3XT, Director Ontario Northeast (Chair), Jeffery Stewart VA3WXM, Director Ontario South, Pat Barrett VE3RNH, Vic Henderson VE3FOX and a member yet to be named.
Questions or comments should be directed to Doug Mercer VO1DM, Vice President Field Services.
