The ARRL Great Lakes Division will have a new Director starting
January 1.  Joe Falcone, N8TI, of Livonia, Michigan, defeated
incumbent Director George Race, WB8BGY.  The vote was 4477 to 2531.
The ARRL Committee of Tellers for the election of directors and vice
directors for the 1998 through 1999 term met November 21 at ARRL
Headquarters to count ballots.

Race served as Great Lakes Division Vice Director before assuming
the Director's position in June of 1995, when former Director Al
Severson, AB8P, resigned (Severson died in September 1997).  Race
was elected to a full term as Director in 1995.

Falcone, 48, is a tax litigation attorney and ARRL life member.

Current Great Lakes Division Vice Director Dave Coons, WT8W, was
unopposed for re-election.

In the Delta Division, incumbent Director Rick Roderick, K5UR, of
Cabot, Arkansas, outpolled Malcolm Keown, W5XX, of Vicksburg,
Mississippi, 2106 to 1330.  Roderick is an attorney.  Delta Division
Vice Director Henry Leggette, WD4Q, had no opposition.

In the Atlantic Division, incumbent Director Kay Craigie, WT3P, of
Paoli, Pennsylvania, easily beat back a challenge from Jim Carson,
WK2K, of Ithaca New York.  The vote tally was 4918 to 1573.

opposition for his seat.

Candidates in four other ARRL divisions also faced no opposition and
