Bill Roberts, W5NPR, of Alpine, has been appointed as the Interim

Field Organization official in West Texas since July 2007; he
previously served as Section Manager from October 2002-June 2005.
Dyer decided not to run for a new term of office that began July 1,

Section Manager Nomination Petition Resolicitation

Since no nominations were received for the West Texas Section
Manager election by the nomination deadline of March 4, 2011,
nominations are hereby resolicited. Nomination petitions need to be
received at ARRL Headquarters by 4 PM EDT on September 9, 2011. If
more than one member is nominated in the section, ballots will be
mailed from Headquarters on or before October 3, 2011, to full
members of record as of September 9, 2011, the closing date for
nominations. Returns will be counted on November 22, 2011. A Section
Manager elected as result of the above procedure will take office on
January 1, 2012.

If only one valid petition is received from a Section, that nominee
shall be declared elected without opposition.  A Section Manager
elected through the resolicitation will serve a term of 18 months
(instead of two years). For more information, see page 67 of the
August 2011 issue of QST.
