W5UR Re-Elected ARRL President; Vice Director Becomes First VP

Rick Roderick, W5UR, won re-election as ARRL President by just one vote at the League's January board of directors meeting, deflecting a challenge by Pacific Division Director Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT, on an 8-7 tally. First Vice President Greg Widin, K0GW, did not seek re-election, and he was succeeded by New England Division Vice Director Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF, who was the only nominee, according to the ARRL Letter.

As reported last month, the board voted not to renew the contract of CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, and named a search committee to make recommendations for a replacement.
