Congratulations to Dave Sumner, K1ZZ, on his retirement this year after 44 years on the ARRL Staff including his current and long time role as Chief Executive Officer. He was also recently honored with the ARRL President’s Award.
Dave has been a longtime supporter of Radio Scouting, including taking a lead role in establishing the ARRL Amateur Radio Service to Scouting Award.
It’s also delightful to note that he served as the manager and trustee for the 1973 National Jamboree station, KJ3BSA. His call sign at the time was K1ZND.
All the best to Dave in his retirement.
