FWRC elects officers, directors for 2016

The Fort Wayne Radio Club conducted elections for club officers and the board of directors for the 2016 club year during the club's October general meeting on October 16, 2015 at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. Since only one person ran for each of the positions of president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and communications manager, the club elected all candidates by acclimation.

Six people ran for three positions on the board of directors: Tom Baker, N9TB; Terry Bowman, K9FMX; Kim Machamer, KB9DOS; Linda Nardin, W9LAN; Paul Prestia, KA3OPZ; and Tom Rupp, KU8T.

Elected officers and directors for 2016 appear in the list below.

President: Charles Ward, KC9MUT
Vice President: Carole Burke, WB9RUS
Secretary: Al Burke, WB9SSE
Treasurer: Bob Streeter, W8ST
Communications Manager: Fred Van Kempen, KA4YBR

 

Board of Directors:

  • Linda Nardin, W9LAN,
  • Paul Prestia, KA3OPZ
  • Tom Rupp, KU8T
  • Steve Nardin, W9SAN (retiring president is automatically the fourth member)

Thanks to all officers, directors and candidates for their willingness to serve.
