ARLB006 Nevada Getting New Section Manager on March 1

The ARRL Nevada Section will have new leadership starting March 1.
Section Manager Joe Giraudo, N7JEH, has announced that he is
stepping down from the position, because a new job with his employer
of more than 30 years will take him outside Nevada more often.

"This absence from the Section makes it increasingly difficult to
effectively serve the membership within Nevada," said Giraudo, of
Elko. He has served as SM since August 2008. "During the past five
years, it has been my honor to serve as your elected Section
Manager," Giraudo said in a message to Nevada ARRL members.

With Giraudo's endorsement, Gary Grant, K7VY, of Reno, has been
appointed to take the reins. He will complete the current term of
office that extends until June 30, 2015. Membership and Volunteer
Programs Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, consulted with Pacific Division
Director Bob Vallio, W6RGG, in making the appointment of Grant.

Grant has been an ARRL member for more than 50 years, and he is
retired from the University of Nevada. He has served as an Assistant
Section Manager, Official Observer Coordinator, and Official
Observer within the Nevada Field Organization and helps run a ham
radio list server.
