Radio Amateurs of Canada has a new President

 President Dave Goodwin, VE3AAQ/VO1AU, announced that he was resigning his position as president of Radio Amateurs of Canada. 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 Smith’s tenure. 

 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.
