Nevada Getting New Section Manager on March 1:

The ARRL Nevada Section will have new leadership starting March 1. Section Manager Joe Giraudo, N7JEH, has announced that he is stepping down from the position, because a new job with his employer of more than 30 years will take him outside Nevada more often.

"This absence from the Section makes it increasingly difficult to effectively serve the membership within Nevada," said Giraudo, of Elko. He has served as SM since August 2008. "During the past five years, it has been my honor to serve as your elected Section Manager," Giraudo said in a message to Nevada ARRL members.

With Giraudo's endorsement, Gary Grant, K7VY, of Reno, has been appointed to take the reins. He will complete the current term of office that extends until June 30, 2015. Membership and Volunteer Programs Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, consulted with Pacific Division Director Bob Vallio, W6RGG, in making the appointment of Grant.

Grant has been an ARRL member for more than 50 years, and he is retired from the University of Nevada. He previously worked in radio and TV broadcasting and ran a two-way radio company. He has served as an Assistant Section Manager, Official Observer Coordinator, and Official Observer within the Nevada Field Organization and helps run a ham radio list server.
