SB QST ARL ARLB005
ARLB005 Two ARRL Sections Getting New Section Managers, Virginia SM
Re-Elected

Karl Bowman, W4CHX, of Raleigh, is the new ARRL North Carolina
Section Manager, effective on February 20. Outgoing SM Bill Morine,
N2COP, of Wilmington, decided not to run for another term after
serving since 2010. Although his term did not end until April 1,
Morine asked to step down early, due to business and personal
commitments, and let Bowman step in early. Membership and Volunteer
Programs Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, reviewed Morine's recommendation
and consulted with Roanoke Division Director Dennis Bodson, W4PWF,
before making the appointment official.

In Louisiana, Jim Molan, KD5IGG, of Bunkie, will succeed Jim
Coleman, AI5B, as Section Manager on April 1. Coleman decided not to
run again after serving a 2 year term, and Molan was the only
candidate. Molan brings to the office his experience as Assistant
Section Manager, Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator, and
District Emergency Coordinator.

In the only contested Section Manager race of this election cycle,
Virginia Section Manager Carl Clements, W4CAC, was re-elected to a
new term. He received 789 votes and his opponent, Anthony Harbour,
KG4YXP, of Ridgeway, polled 568 votes. Ballots were counted on
February 18 at ARRL Headquarters.

Clements, who lives in Portsmouth, has been Section Manager
continuously since 2008, and he served previously as SM from 2001
until 2006. His new 2 year term begins on April 1.

The following incumbent ARRL Section Managers did not face
opposition and were declared elected for new terms of office
beginning on April 1: Pete Cecere, N2YJZ, Eastern New York; Robert
B. Famiglio, K3RF, Eastern Pennsylvania; Bob Schneider, AH6J,
Pacific; Steve Early, AD6VI, San Diego, and Chris Stallkamp, W0ADZ,
South Dakota.
