ARLB098 Vice Director Thernes, W4ZN, resigns

Great Lakes Division Vice Director John Thernes, W4ZN, of Covington,
Kentucky, has announced his resignation, effective December 17.  In
a letter to ARRL Secretary David Sumner, K1ZZ, Thernes, 48, said he
was stepping down in order to attend graduate school.

''This is a decision that has been very difficult for me, but one I
must make,'' Thernes said in his letter.  He plans to pursue a
full-time graduate program to obtain his MBA.  Thernes said he'd
like to set up an international consulting business eventually and
believes the MBA and his skill in Japanese will turn out to be a
successful combination.

''Amateur radio is a great public servant and a wonderful hobby,''
wrote Thernes in wishing his former Board colleagues Godspeed.  ARRL
President Rod Stafford, KB6ZV, will appoint a successor.
