Appointment of new MDC Section Manager

It gives me great pleasure to announce that our ARRL Maryland/DC Section has a new manager, Chris Van Winkle AB3WG.  You will recognize Chris as an assistant Section Manager for MD/DC for some time.  Marty Pittinger, KB3MXM, our recent SM has been elevated to Vice Director of the Atlantic Division.  You likely heard about this from my friend Tom Abernethy, W3TOM, our recently retired Atlantic division director.  Tom and I both knew that Marty was right for Atlantic and that he would be a tough act to follow as an SM.  But Chris is up to that job, we are sure.

As I type, Marty is inbound to the annual Board meeting in CT where I will have the pleasure of working with him beginning this week in my new position as your Atlantic Division Director.  You will all hear more about this all soon, but be assured that you are in good hands at the section and division level.  We will work hard to demonstrate that.  All of us represent your interest in the League and we take that responsibility seriously.

73 and we will see you on the radio.

Bob Famiglio, K3RF
ARRL Atlantic Division Director
