Radio Amateurs of Canada has a new President

February 25, 2009

At the February 24th, 2009 Radio Amateurs of Canada Board
teleconference meeting, President Dave Goodwin, VE3AAQ/VO1AU,
announced that he was resigning his position effective
immediately. Dave indicated that his decision was motivated
by his inability to devote enough time to RAC affairs because
of a recent increase in personal and professional responsibilities.

Dave became RAC President on Jan 1st, 2008 at the end of
President Earle Smithís tenure. All attending the teleconference
thanked Dave for the time he could devote to RACís affairs both
as a Director and then as President.

At the same teleconference meeting, the RAC Board elected Bob
Cooke, VE3BDB, to be the RAC President until the end of the
current term on Dec 31, 2009.

Bob has a long history of working with RAC. His involvement
started in the early 1990s as an Assistant Director and he was
elected and served as RAC Ontario South Director from
November 2001 to January 2005. He was then elected by the RAC
Board as Vice president for Field Services, serving from
January 2006 to February 2009 when he resigned to accept the
appointment as President.

Daniel A. Lamoureux, VE2KA,
Vice President for International Affairs
