As some of you know, I recently retired after 36 years in the military.
Since then, I have taken a new job in Fargo with a company as a
corporate pilot. With this change of careers, it means my schedule is
no longer in my control, and I have made the decision to not run for
another term as your ARRL Dakota Division Director. This has been a
very difficult decision and one I wish I didn't need to make, but I feel
I cannot represent our division as I should.
If you have any interest in either the Director or Vice Director
position, I encourage you to check page 83 of the August edition of QST
(2017) for details. There are a couple of deadlines to note: August
11th, 2017 for requesting an official nominating package, and August
18th, 2017 for submission of that package. Please consult QST for all
It has been an great honor and a privilege to represent the amateurs of
MN, ND, & SD since 2010 as both a Vice Director and most recently your
Director. We might be the smallest ARRL division in population, but I
believe we're the largest in pride and support of our great hobby.
I thank each and every one of you for your support and friendship! I
will continue as your director until Jan 2018 (when the current term
expires), and if you have any questions, please email me or call.
