ARLB009 South Texas SM Stepping Aside; New South Texas SM Appointed

ARRL South Texas Section Manager Lee Cooper, W5LHC, has announced
that he'll step down at the end of March due to time constraints and
the workload associated with his consulting business.

"This was not an easy decision to make but one I felt best for the
future of our Section," Cooper said in a message to South Texas
Section members. "I have been the Section Manager for the South
Texas section since 2009. The position, if done well, can be a very
time-consuming but very rewarding one. I feel I have spent the past
9 years working to improve all areas of the Field Organization in
South Texas."

Cooper, of Leander, retired from state service in 2015 and started
his own consulting business. He said that while his business has
"taken off," it's also severely cramped his schedule, limiting his
ability to attend events around the Section.

"Thank you for allowing me to lead the section, for accepting some
of my crazy ideas and turning them into reality," Cooper told the
members. "Please offer your support to my replacement."

Paul Gilbert, KE5ZW, has been appointed to succeed Cooper, starting
on April 1, to complete the current term of office that continues
through September 30, 2019. ARRL Radiosport Manager Norm Fusaro,
W3IZ, made the appointment after consulting with West Gulf Division
Director Dr. David Woolweaver, K5RAV.

Gilbert, of Cedar Park, is an Assistant Section Emergency
Coordinator and Technical Specialist in the South Texas Section. He
also serves as the West Gulf Division Assistant Director for Public
Safety. He is a member of the Radio Club of America Board of
