ARLB002 Pacific Section Manager change takes place early

Kevin Bogan, AH6QO, of Honolulu, is the new ARRL Pacific Section
Manager. Bogan replaces veteran Pacific SM Bob Schneider, AH6J, who
decided to step down two and half months early. Bogan was the only
nominee to succeed Schneider in the last election cycle and was
declared elected. His term normally would begin April 1. ARRL Field
and Educational Services Manager Rosalie White, K1STO, announced the
appointment, which is effective January 15.

Schneider, in a message to Pacific Section ARRL members, said he and
Bogan are now in the transition process, and he anticipated there
would be a few days overlap. "I will be around to help Kevin as an
Assistant SM, and you may see and hear from me from time to time as
appropriate," Schneider said. "It has been a pleasure working with
all of you."

Schneider, from Keaau, Hawaii, served three terms as SM--from 1992
until 1996 and from 2002 until the present. Bogan has been an ASM
since last October and an Amateur Radio Emergency Service District
Emergency Coordinator for Oahu since 2002.

Bogan said the need for emergency communication in the wake of
Hurricane Iniki convinced him to get his ticket in 1993. He's been
an officer of the Emergency Amateur Radio Club for more than six
years and also is involved in the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency
Service program on Oahu.
