ARLB022 Michigan Section Manager Appointment Begins on January 1

Jim Kvochick, K8JK, of Brighton, Michigan, has been appointed as
Michigan Section Manager for the first half of next year. His
appointment will begin on January 1, 2018, and will continue through
June 30. Kvochick was appointed by ARRL Radiosport Manager Norm
Fusaro, W3IZ, in consultation with ARRL Great Lakes Division
Director Dale Williams, WA8EFK, and outgoing Michigan Section
Manager Larry Camp, WB8R. Camp, who has served as SM since 2012,
intends to step down from the volunteer position on December 31,
when his term of office concludes.

An ARRL Life Member, Kvochick was licensed in 1968. He has been
active in many facets of Amateur Radio, including public service,
experimenting, and equipment restoration. He currently serves as an
Assistant Emergency Coordinator and a Volunteer Examiner. He is
president, newsletter editor, and technical director for the
Livingston Amateur Radio Klub.

Kvochick's appointment will bridge the gap until a Section Manager
is elected in Michigan. According to the Rules and Regulations of
the Field Organization, when a Section Manager vacancy occurs
between elections, the position is filled by appointment.

The Michigan appointment was necessary because no candidate was
nominated to succeed Camp by the time the deadline for Section
Manager nominations arrived in September. The same situation exists
in the ARRL East Bay, New Mexico, and Santa Barbara sections.
Nominations are being resolicited in all four sections for
candidates to serve an 18-month term of office starting on July 1,
2018; the resolicitation will appear in the January and February
2018 issues of QST. Section Manager nomination forms and related
information are available on the ARRL website.
