Nominations for ARRL Western Massachusetts Section Manager closed on last Friday, September 8th. Only one WMA ARRL member submitted nomination paperwork for the election. As a result, Ray Lajoie KB1LRL won the uncontested election. Ray hails from Lunenburg and has long been a member and highly involved with the Montachusett ARA in a variety of roles.
Regarding his election, Ray states “I am looking forward to serving the Western Mass section and visiting the various clubs in the coming future. The months coming will be a lot of fact gathering and looking to see where we need to work on first.”
Ray will take the reins from current Section Manager Ed Emco W1KT on January 1, 2018, whom is standing down from the position after serving in that role for the last 12 years.
