*ARRL Forum Guest Speaker*

*Mike Corey KI1U - Bio & Forum Description:*

I am originally from Indiana and was first licensed in 1988. Over the 
last two decades I've been involved in SkyWarn, ARES/RACES, and disaster 
response. I've served in the ARRL Field Organization as a Volunteer 
Examiner and
Emergency Coordinator.

Professionally I have served as a public safety communications officer 
since 2001, a public safety instructor since 2006,
and have also served as an emergency management volunteer and reserve 
police officer. I attended Indiana University
for my bachelors in political science and the University of Mississippi 
for my masters in criminal justice.

Besides emergency communications I also enjoy DXing, contesting, QRP, 
digital modes, and CW. I am a member of the
University of Mississippi Amateur Radio Club, the Kokomo Amateur Radio 
Club, Straight Key Century Club, alumni member
of the Indiana University Amateur Radio Club, and a life member of the 
ARRL. I am also the author (along with Vic Morris
AH6WX) of the new ARRL book Storm Spotting and Amateur Radio.

*Forum Description:*

The Served Community Concept -- Based in the whole community concept of 
emergency management the served community concept focuses on Amateur 
Radio operators as an asset to their neighborhoods and communities. The 
focus is on being a
good diplomat for Amateur Radio, inclusion of the entire Amateur Radio 
community, bringing communications technology and expertise to the 
impacted community, and adding resiliency within the community.
