ARRL Board of Directors Elects Officers, Executive Committee


One new face will be among the Officers at the next ARRL Board of Directors meeting in July. During their twice-yearly meeting, the Board met in Windsor, Connecticut, January 21-22, 2022, and elected John R. Sager, WJ7S of Saratoga Springs, Utah to succeed Treasurer, Rick Niswander, K7GM, on May 1.

Niswander had previously shared his decision to step down, having completed more than 10 years of distinguished service in the volunteer position. Niswander’s most recent 2-year term as Treasurer expired in January. The Board re-elected him to continue to serve through April 30, 2022, allowing a transition between Niswander and Treasurer-elect Sager.
