ARLB006 ARRL Officer Elections Set Musical Chairs in Motion

Officer elections at the January ARRL Board of Directors meeting
generated a ripple effect of vacancies within the ARRL hierarchy.
The elevation of West Gulf Director Jim Haynie, W5JBP, to the League
presidency set off a game of musical chairs that saw Vice Director
Coy Day, N5OK, accede to the director's slot, creating a vacancy in
the West Gulf Vice Director's chair. Haynie has appointed Dr David
A. Woolweaver, K5RAV, of Harlingen, Texas, to be the new Vice
Director. Dr Woolweaver is a periodontist in private practice.

Haynie filled vice directors' openings in the Atlantic and Roanoke
divisions from within the section manager ranks. In the Atlantic
Division, Director Kay Craigie, WT3P, was elected a Vice President,
and Vice Director Bernie Fuller, N3EFN, moved up to Director.
Western Pennsylvania SM Bill Edgar, N3LLR, has been appointed as the
new Atlantic Vice Director. In the Roanoke Division, Director John
Kanode, N4MM, was elected a Vice President, and his
second-in-command, Dennis Bodson, W4PWF, moved into the top slot.
South Carolina SM Leslie Shattuck Sr., K4NK, has been tapped to
replace Bodson as Roanoke Vice Director.

Replacing Edgar as Western Pennsylvania SM will be John V. Rodgers,
N3MSE, of Butler. In South Carolina, Patricia Hensley, N4ROS, of
Richburg will succeed Shattuck.

Bill Edgar, N3LLR, a Tech Plus licensee, recently passed all of the
written elements he'll need to upgrade to Amateur Extra when the new
FCC licensing rules go into effect April 15.

Meanwhile, Puerto Rico will get a new section manager as a result of
a resignation. ARRL Field and Educational Services Manager Rosalie
White, WA1STO, has appointed Victor Madera, KP4PQ, to replace Raul
Escobar, KP4ZZ, as Puerto Rico's SM. Escobar stepped down for
personal reasons.
