A couple of announcements from the Spring ORSI membership meeting

NE District Officer and ORSI secretary Bob Buford W5RAB resigned - retired. We appreciate the years of dedicated service. His replacement as NE District Officer was elected, we'll introduce him later. The secretary position is currently vacant.

The way the officer positions are determined:

President, elected by the membership, and is an at large position.

The district officers are elected by the membership, but must live within the district they represent. Then three of the officers are appointed by the president and sort of volunteer to serve as treasurer, vice-president, and secretary. The other three officers serve with the president on a coordination oversight committee to help resolve any controversies or interference issues.
