ARLB006 Louisiana Elects New Section Manager

ARRL members in Louisiana have elected John Mark Robertson, K5JMR,
as Section Manager for the next 2-year term of office that starts on
April 1. Robertson, of Bossier City, outpolled incumbent Section
Manager Scott Wren, KD5DFL, 341 to 148 votes. Wren, of Pineville,
has served as SM since April 2016. Ballots were counted and verified
at ARRL Headquarters on Tuesday, February 20. This was the only
contested Section Manager election this winter.

An ARRL Life Member and radio amateur since 2008, Robertson
currently serves as Louisiana Section Emergency Coordinator. He is a
past president and board member of the Shreveport Amateur Radio
Association and the current secretary of the Amateur Radio Club of
Shreveport. He is also a director of the Louisiana Council of
Amateur Radio Clubs (Frequency Coordination), an active member of
the Shreveport Digital Team, and a charter member of the Minden
Amateur D-STAR.

The following incumbent ARRL Section Managers did not face
opposition and were declared elected for new terms of office
beginning on April 1: John Fritze, Jr., K2QY (Eastern New York);
Karl Bowman, W4CHX (North Carolina); Joe Speroni, AH0A (Pacific);
David Kaltenborn, N8KBC (San Diego); Chris Stallkamp, KI0D (South
Dakota), and Joseph Palsa, K3WRY (Virginia).

Because no Section Manager nominations were received from Eastern
Pennsylvania by the December 8, 2017, deadline, nominations are
being resolicited for an 18-month term of office beginning on
October 1, 2018. Petitions of nomination are due at Headquarters on
June 8. The April and May editions of QST will included details.
