ARLB019 New Section Managers Appointed in Orange and Eastern

Carl Gardenias, WU6D, of Perris, California, is retiring as ARRL
Orange Section Manager after serving in the position since 2003. His
term of office had expired at the end of March, but he agreed to
continue serving as SM until a successor was chosen.

A re-solicitation for Section Manager nominations in the Orange
Section was issued this past spring. The only nominee responding by
the June 4 deadline was Bob Turner, W6RHK, also of Perris,
California. Turner's elected 2-year term of office does not
officially begin until October 1, and Gardenias has said he wished
to step down as Section Manager at the end of June.

In accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the ARRL Field
Organization, ARRL Field Services Manager Mike Walters, W8ZY, has
appointed Turner to start his term of office as the Orange Section
Manager earlier than scheduled, with the appointment effective July
1. Walters made his decision after consulting with ARRL Southwestern
Division Director Dick Norton, N6AA, and Gardenias. Turner has been
the Section Emergency Coordinator for the past 10 years.

ARRL Eastern Washington Section Manager Jack Tiley, AD7FO, will be
stepping down early from his term of office that concludes on
September 30, 2021. Tiley, of Spokane Valley, has been Section
Manager for 2 and a half years.

Jo Whitney, KA7LJQ, was the only nominee when the June 4 nomination
deadline arrived, and she was declared elected. Whitney initially
was scheduled to start her term of office on October 1, but because
Tiley is stepping down before the end of his term, Walters, after
consulting with ARRL Northwestern Division Director Mike Ritz, W7VO,
has appointed Whitney to start her term of office on July 1

Whitney, of Yakima, has been an ARRL Emergency Coordinator since
2003, and she served as a District Emergency Coordinator in 2018 and
