ARLB002 Oregon SM Bonnie Altus, AB7ZQ, Named ARRL Northwestern
Division Vice Director

ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, has tapped Oregon Section Manager
Bonnie Altus, AB7ZQ, of Sheridan, as the League's Northwestern
Division Vice Director, succeeding Jim Pace, K7CEX. Pace acceded to
ARRL Northwestern Division Director after former director Jim
Fenstermaker, K9JF, was elected ARRL Second Vice President earlier
this month at the ARRL Board of Directors annual meeting.

Licensed since 1997, Altus became interested in ham radio while
working in information systems and telecommunications for a
hospital. She thought ham radio would be beneficial in disaster
communications, and she used what she learned as a new licensee to
write an emergency communications plan for the hospital. She has
served as president of the McMinnville Amateur Radio Club and as an
ARES assistant emergency coordinator and emergency coordinator. An
Amateur Extra Class licensee, she is especially interested in
digital modes. Her husband Mark is AC7ZQ. She served more than 7
years as Oregon Section Manager, from July 2006 until January 2014.

ARRL Membership and Volunteer Programs Department Manager Dave
Patton, NN1N, announced the appointment of Everett "Ev" Curry,
W6ABM, of Hillsboro, Oregon, to fill the remainder of Altus's term
as Oregon Section Manager. Patton consulted with Pace in filling the
SM vacancy. Curry will serve until the current term expires on June
30, 2014. Nominations for the next term of office (starting July 1)
for the Oregon SM are now being solicited.

Curry has been an Assistant Section Manager in Oregon since 2007, an
Official Observer since 2003, and the Official Observer Coordinator
since 2008. In addition he served as Public Information Coordinator
for Oregon from 2002 to 2007. An ARRL Life Member, he is editor of
The Oscillator, the monthly journal of the Tualatin Valley Amateur
Radio Club.
