to Continue New Terms in April 2023

Betsey Doane, K1EIC, has been appointed by ARRL Headquarters as the
Connecticut Section Manager, as of November 23, 2022, to fulfill the

Section Manager for 25 years, from 1991 to 2016.

Chuck Motes, K1DFS, of Plainville, has served as ARRL Connecticut
Section Manager for the last 6 years. He decided not to run for a
new term of office when his third term concluded on September 30,

Ralph Fettig, N0RDF, will become the ARRL North Dakota Section
Manager on January 1, 2023.

Fettig, of Minot, was the only nominee to submit a petition to run
for office when the re-solicited nomination period closed on
December 9, 2022. As the sole nominee, he has been declared elected.
Although his elected 18-month term of office starts on April 1,
2023, Fettig has been officially appointed by ARRL Field Services
Manager Mike Walters, W8ZY, to start early on New Year's Day.

North Dakota Section Manager Richard Budd, W0TF, of York, decided
not to run for a another 2-year term of office that began on October

Manager until a new Section Manager could be installed.

Manager on January 1, 2023.

Charles O'Neal, KE4AIE, of Glasgow, Kentucky, has been appointed as
the ARRL Kentucky Section Manager, starting January 1, 2023, after
he was the only nominee for the position when the nomination
deadline passed on December 9, 2022. Although O'Neal's elected
2-year term of office officially begins on April 1, 2023, Field
Services Manager Mike Walters, W8ZY, appointed him to start on New
Year's Day because the position has been open for the past few

Kentucky Section Manager Steve Morgan, W4NHO, decided to step down
this past July, before the current term of office concludes on March
31, 2023. Morgan, of Owensboro, has served as Section Manager since
2017. He has been serving simultaneously as the Section Traffic
Manager and Affiliated Club Coordinator. Morgan was also the ARRL
Kentucky Section Manager from 1991 to 1997.

For the winter season Section Manager election cycle, there will not
be balloted elections. The following incumbent ARRL Section Managers
ran un-opposed, and they have been declared re-elected and will
begin their new 2-year terms of office on April 1, 2023: Rick

Garner, WA0UIG (Iowa); Malcolm Keown, W5XX (Mississippi); Steven
Lott Smith, KG5VK (North Texas); Bob Turner, W6RHK (Orange), and
Garth Crowe, WY7GC (Wyoming).

There were no Section Manager nominees from Montana for the next
term of office. ARRL Montana Section Manager Paul Stiles, KF7SOJ, of
Billings, decided not to run for a new term of office. Since no
nominations from Montana were submitted, a re-solicitation for
nominees will appear in the April and May 2023 issues of QST.
