ARLB020 Ed James, KA8JMW, Appointed as New Mexico Section Manager

A new Section Manager has been appointed in New Mexico. Ed James,
KA8JMW, of Albuquerque, was named on June 11 to succeed Bill
Kauffman, W5YEJ, who has resigned citing increased family
responsibilities. Kauffman had served as New Mexico's SM since 2012,
and was the Section Emergency Coordinator for many years prior to
that. James will complete the remainder of the current term, which
continues through the end of the year.

ARRL Field Services and Radiosport Department Manager Dave Patton,
NN1N, made the appointment after consulting with, and receiving the
recommendation from, Rocky Mountain Division Director Brian
Mileshosky, N5ZGT, and Vice Director Dwayne Allen, WY7FD.

A ham for 35 years, James has served as an Assistant Section Manager
of New Mexico since 2012, and currently serves as an Assistant
Director in the Rocky Mountain Division. He recently concluded a
30-year electrical engineering career at Sandia National

James comes from a ham radio family. His late father was WD8MMG. His
wife Carol is N5ZYP, and all five of the couple's daughters hold ham
tickets and are ARRL members. Field Day is among his passions. "Most
weekends I can be found operating from somewhere in the mountains of
New Mexico," James said in his biography. "I love operating
from the field."

Petitions to nominate candidates to serve as New Mexico Section
Manager for the next 2-year term should be submitted to ARRL
Headquarters by September 4.
