SB QST ARL ARLB018
ARLB018 Robert Wareham, N0ESQ, Appointed as Rocky Mountain Division
Vice Director

ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, has named Robert Wareham, N0ESQ,
of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, as Rocky Mountain Division Vice
Director. Wareham will serve the remaining term of Jeff Ryan, K0RM,
who assumed the position of Rocky Mountain Director upon the
resignation of Dwayne Allen, WY7FD.

"I have worked side-by-side with Robert for many years addressing
issues that could have an effect on Amateur Radio, and I am pleased
he is joining me at the Division level to continue these efforts"
Ryan said.

An ARRL Life Member, Wareham has been serving as Colorado Section
Emergency Coordinator since 2011. 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. AuxComm is a unit of the Colorado Department
of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) and is managed
by Colorado ARES leadership under a Memorandum of Understanding.

Wareham also was instrumental in drafting a provision exempting
Amateur Radio licensees from a hands-free cell phone bill, and for
drafting a bill codifying the provisions of the limited federal
pre-emption known as PRB-1 into Colorado law. He has been providing
pro bono legal assistance to Colorado Amateur Radio clubs for many
years.

Wareham will serve the remainder of the Vice Director's term, which
runs through 2019.
