New Section Manager Appointed in South Carolina
Marc Tarplee, N4UFP, of Rock Hill, has been appointed the new ARRL South Carolina Section Manager. He will complete the term of Jim Boehner, N2ZZ, who was elected ARRL Roanoke Division Vice Director last month. When Boehner announced that he was stepping down from the Section Manager post he has held since January 2003, he recommended Tarplee, the South Carolina Section Technical Coordinator, for the position. Tarplee and Boehner both take on their new positions January 1, 2010. According to the Rules and Regulations of the ARRL Field Organization, when a vacancy in the office of Section Manager occurs between elections, the position is filled by appointment by the Membership and Volunteer Programs Manager in consultation with that Division’s Director. MVP Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, consulted with Roanoke Division Director Dennis Bodson, W4PWF. Tarplee has been South Carolina’s Technical Coordinator for almost seven years, first appointed by Boehner in January 2003. Tarplee’s term of office as Section Manager will continue through December 31, 2010.
