Consultation Policy provides specific ways and means for all to comment

Noting an expressed desire among some members and others in the Amateur Radio community for a formal process for the WIA to encourage consultation on issues affecting Amateur Radio, the WIA Board has formalised a policy and processes for this in its Consultation Policy, which is now available for download.

Despite the fact that various means for members and others have always been available to send comments and feedback to Institute – and these are used daily – the advent of specific online ‘Have Your Say’ facilities by government agencies at national, state and local levels, as well as unions, professional societies and other non-government organisations, has given rise to a general expectation that such a specific facility be instituted by organisations generally.

The principal objective is that all WIA members, and the amateur radio community generally, have the opportunity to provide views and comments to the WIA on identified matters or issues of interest or importance via the means of a specific online channel, with secondary channels via traditional means of email, fax and post.
