ARLB067 ARRL president steps down
On July 1, 1995, American Radio Relay League President George S.
Wilson III, W4OYI, submitted his resignation from the office he has
held since January 1992.  Mr Wilson, who suffered a stroke on
February 11, presently is in a rehabilitation hospital in
Evansville, Indiana.
Mr Wilson said that while he has made progress in rehabilitation,
his medical condition prevents him from traveling and from devoting
the energy required to perform the duties of the office for the
remainder of his term, which expires at the January 1996 meeting of
the ARRL Board of Directors.  He expressed his appreciation to the
members of the Board for the opportunity to serve.
''The League has my undying love and support,'' he said.
In accordance with the ARRL By-Laws, First Vice President Rodney J.
Stafford, KB6ZV, has been performing the duties of president since
Mr Wilson became incapacitated in February.  With Mr Wilson's
resignation, Mr Stafford becomes president for the remainder of the
term.  The next ARRL vice president in the order of succession, Jay
A. Holladay, W6EJJ, becomes first vice president.
Upon completion of the rehabilitation program in Evansville, Mr
Wilson will return to his home in Owensboro, Kentucky.
