ARLB057 Sole ARRL Director Race is in Hudson Division

The only contested seat in the current election cycle for ARRL
directors and vice directors is in the Hudson Division. Incumbent
Director Frank Fallon, N2FF, of New York will face a challenge from
current Vice Director and former Director Stephen A. Mendelsohn,
W2ML, of New Jersey. The current election cycle includes the
Central, Hudson, New England, Northwestern and Roanoke divisions.

Ballots in the contested race will go out no later than October 1 to
all full League members in the division who are in good standing as
of September 10. Ballots must be received at ARRL Headquarters by
noon Eastern Time on Friday, November 21.

The lone candidate for the vice director's seat that Mendelsohn is
vacating, Joyce Birmingham, KA2ANF, has been declared elected.

Incumbents ran unopposed in the other divisions and were declared
elected. They are: Director Dick Isely, W9GIG, and Vice Director
Howard Huntington, K9KM, in the Central Division; Director Tom
Frenaye, K1KI, and Vice Director Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF, in the New
England Division; Director Greg Milnes, W7OZ, and Vice Director Jim
Fenstermaker, K9JF, in the Northwestern Division; and Director
Dennis Bodson, W4PWF, and Vice Director Les Shattuck, K4NK, in the
Roanoke Division.

A petition from former South Carolina Section Manager Patricia
Hensley, N4ROS, for the Roanoke Division's vice director slot was
deemed invalid because it did not contain enough ARRL member
signatures.

Three-year terms of office for successful director and vice director
candidates begin at noon on January 1, 2004.
