The Programs and Services Committee (PSC) of the League is one of the two standing committees of the Board of Directors. The PSC meets monthly by webinar and on a quarterly basis in person. Two of the quarterly meetings are just prior to the annual meetings of the Board. Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT, currently serves as the only Vice Director appointed by the President to the PSC. He also serves as the Chair of the Radio Sport Subcommittee of the PSC. The Radio Sport Subcommittee interfaces with the PSC, and acts as a sounding board to the Advisory Committees and the Awards Committee on radio sport issues.

President Craigie, N3KN, also has appointed Jim to serve on the Centennial Celebration Committee which is planning the celebration and commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the ARRL in 2014.
