ARLB056 New ARRL Section Managers taking reins in Western 
Pennsylvania and Orange

ARRL Field and Educational Services Manager Rosalie White, K1STO,
has appointed Rich Beaver, N3SRJ, of Jeannette, as Western
Pennsylvania Section Manager, effective September 8, 2003. He will
succeed John Rodgers, N3MSE, who's stepping down for personal
reasons but will remain in office through the Western Pennsylvania
Section Convention the weekend of September 6-7.

Rodgers initially became SM in January 2000 when then-SM Bill Edgar,
N3LLR, was appointed Atlantic Division Vice Director. He was elected
to a two-year term in his own right last fall. Beaver will complete
Rodgers' current term, which ends December 31, 2004. An Assistant
Section Manager since June, Beaver has served as Western
Pennsylvania Section Emergency Coordinator since February, 1998.

White has appointed Carl H. Gardenias, WU6D, of Highland,
California, to replace Joe Brown, W6UBQ, as ARRL Orange Section
Manager. Brown, who is stepping down September 14 because he's
moving out of the section, recommended Gardenias for the position.
White accepted Brown's resignation "with regret," and she called
Brown "a fine leader" who has served his section well for more than
20 years. "Your dedication and work will be greatly missed," she
told Brown.

Gardenias has been an ARRL Life Member since 1979 and serves on the
ARRL Ad Hoc Committee for Strategic Planning. In addition, he's been
a member of the International DX Convention (Visalia) committee
since 1983 and chaired the committee for six years. He also has
taught licensing classes for many years and now coordinates other
instructors. Members may contact Carl Gardenias via e-mail at
