|Each IARU Region 3 member society is required by the Constitution to appoint a Liaison Officer. The Constitution says:|
11. Each member society shall at all times be represented by a liaison officer whose appointment shall be notified to the Secretary in writing. Each liaison officer so appointed shall as far as possible be a radio amateur and a member in good standing with the member Society represented.
12. Other than at a conference, all views of a member Society shall be presented by its Liaison Officer and all correspondence to a member Society shall be directed to the Liaison Officer. He shall notify the Secretary of the vote of his Society on any matter submitted for the vote of member Societies.
Every Society has two important liaison tasks:
In some societies, these tasks may be for the same person, or in a small society, by the President.
At the 11th IARU Region 3 Conference held in Darwin in August 2000, a Workshop was held to discuss the tasks of these Liaison Officers and also to consider the promotion of Amateur Radio.
Two PowerPoint displays were used. One is about the Administration Liaison Officer and the preparation of submissions by a society for presenting to its administration. The other is about promoting Amateur Radio. These two display files are available here for you to download.
A hand-out paper was distributed at the Workshop to support the display about the task of the Administration Liaison Officer and the preparation of submissions. This too is here for you to download.
A further display file, about the task of the IARU Liaison Officer, is in preparation and will be available from here when completed.
