ARLB011 Southern Florida Getting New Section Manager on June 1

The Southern Florida Section will get a new Section Manager on June
1. Current SM David Fowler, K4DLF, of West Palm Beach, has announced
plans to step down at the end of the month. Fowler, who has been at
the helm in Southern Florida since October 1, 2010, cited recently
increased work responsibilities as the reason for his resignation.

Jeff Beals, WA4AW, of Loxahatchee, will take over as the Southern
Florida Section Manager, effective on June 1. He will complete the
current term of office, which runs through September 30. SM
vacancies between elections are filled by appointment, and Fowler
recommended that Beals succeed him. ARRL Membership and Volunteer
Programs Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, also consulted with Southeastern
Division Director Doug Rehman, K4AC, before making the appointment.

An ARRL Life Member, Beals has been licensed since the early 1960s.
He has been serving an Assistant Section Manager, a District
Emergency Coordinator, and a Public Information Officer in the
Southern Florida Section. He was the ARRL Southeastern Division Vice
Director from 2009 until 2011.

A solicitation is underway for nominations for the next 2-year term
of office for the Southern Florida Section Manager's position.
Nominations are due at ARRL Headquarters by Friday, June 6, at 4 PM
Eastern Time. Further details are on the ARRL website at, .
