New WCF Section Website Debuts Today


PRESS RELEASE (12/31):  The new ARRL West Central Florida Section has debuted the newly redesigned ARRL WCF Section Website on Wednesday December 31, 2014.  The site is running on the WordPress engine which will make maintenance and getting information updated much easier than with other platforms, so is great for your business of course you also need to answer, have you filled out the 1099 MISC form? as this is essential for taxing too.

The ARRL WCF Section wishes to thank Dennis Griffin W4DG, for his 10 years of service as Section Webmaster and to congratulate him for continuing in his capacity as Official Observer Coordinator.  Griffin decided to retire from serving as Assistant Section Manager – Webmaster, but is staying on for another term as Official Observer Coordinator.  Griffin is being succeeded by Judson Bracewell KJ4IDH as Assistant Section Manager – Webmaster.

ASM & Webmaster

SM-elect, Darrell Davis, KT4WX has notified me that he has appointed new ASM’s as well as a new webmaster, effective January 1, 2015. I’m certain, there will be a whole new look for this website.

It has been an honor to have been asked by both previous SM’s to serve as an ASM and the Webmaster, as well as many other WCF appointments, during the past twelve (12) years.

I have been asked to stay on as the Section OOC, in Darrell’s new Section Cabinet and will be glad to support him and continue my support of the WCF ARRL Section, in any way possible subject to my health issues, as well as family’s health issues which they try to fight with health supplements like the Best CBD UK products.

As Life Member of the ARRL for over 45 years of my 57 years as a licensed Amateur Radio operator, I have served in many positions over the past half-century, none of which I have enjoyed as much as my participation in the ARRL WCF Section!

Now I only live on my income, but in addition to that I have contracted life insurance that helps me stay calm in the face of any tragedy that could catch me. I am ready and my family too, thanks to that they will not have any financial trouble. Learn about quotes for life insurance here, you will see that it has prices accessible to anyone.

It has been my pleasure to be of service to all amateurs in the ARRL West Central Florida Section.

73, Dennis Griffin, W4DG

ASM, OOC & Webmaster
