SB QST ARL ARLB022
ARLB022 New Section Manager Appointed in Arkansas

J.M. Rowe, N5XFW, of Hot Springs, has been appointed as the new ARRL
Arkansas Section Manager with a term to begin on December 22, 2008.
Rowe is taking over the Section Manager reins from David Norris,
K5UZ, who was elected Vice Director of the ARRL Delta Division in
November.  Norris assumes his office on January 1, 2009.

When Norris announced that he was stepping down from the Section
Manager post he has held since April 2005, he recommended Arkansas
Section Emergency Coordinator Rowe for the position. Rowe was
already scheduled to become Arkansas Section Manager on April 1,
2009, since he was the only nominee for the next term of office when
the petition deadline passed on December 5.  According to the Rules
and Regulations of the Field Organization, when a vacancy in the
office of Section Manager occurs between elections, the position is
filled by appointment by the Membership and Volunteer Programs
Manager, in consultation with the Director. MVP Manager Dave Patton,
NN1N, consulted with outgoing Delta Division Director Henry
Leggette, WD4Q, and with Mickey Cox, K5MC, the incoming Delta
Division Director.  Cox, like Norris, will begin his term January 1,
2009.

Rowe has been Arkansas Section Emergency Coordinator for nearly four
years. He was first appointed Emergency Coordinator in 2000 and was
promoted to District Emergency Coordinator in 2001, a position he
continues to hold. Rowe also served as an Assistant Section Manager
from 2002-2005. Rowe's term of office as Section Manager continues
through March 31, 2011.
