ARLB013 Rocky Mountain Vice Director Resigns to Accept Appointment
as Colorado Section Manager

ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Vice Director Robert Wareham, N0ESQ,
has stepped down from that post to accept appointment as Colorado
Section Manager. Wareham would succeed veteran Colorado SM Jack
Ciaccia, WM0G, who resigned effective on June 1 after serving since
2011.

"Jack will be moving to the East Coast to be closer to family, and I
wish him only the best as he transitions to this next phase of his
life," ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Director Jeff Ryan, K0RM, said
in a message to his Division. "At the same time, I am sorry to lose
such an outstanding leader who has been instrumental in the creation
and maintenance of the vibrant Amateur Radio community that exists
across Colorado today. Jack has been a personal friend and advisor
to me for many years, and I shall miss his thoughtful guidance and
his quick humor."

Ciaccia, who is relocating to New Hampshire, said his was a
bittersweet decision. "I am really proud of our accomplishments in
the Colorado Section during the past 9 years," he told ARRL. "I will
miss the hams I have met here in Colorado and their friendship.  I
am looking forward to now being able to just spend the rest of my
days continuing with the satisfaction and enjoyment that ham radio
has given me over the past 63 years that I have been licensed."

Wareham would complete Ciaccia's current term, which runs until
September 30, 2021. An ARRL Life Member, Wareham served as Colorado
Section Emergency Coordinator since 2011, prior to his appointment
as Rocky Mountain Vice Director in 2018. He previously served in the
Field Organization as Colorado's State Government Liaison and as
Public Information Officer. An attorney, Wareham assisted in
drafting the bill that created the Colorado Auxiliary Emergency
Communications Unit (AuxComm) in 2016.

Ryan said that while he's sorry to lose Wareham's counsel as Vice
Director, "I'm certain he will provide for a virtually seamless
transition."

A new Rocky Mountain Division Vice Director will be appointed.
