From Carl Gardenias, Immediate Past Section Manager

After serving 17 years (since 2003), I have decided to retire my position as section manager of the ARRL Orange Section.

It has been a great run and have made lots of new friends, visited many clubs, increased our ARES program, OO program in the Orange Section and we have also been through many changes to the ARRL regarding the OO program, ARES program and getting a ticket as an Amateur Radio operator.

I want to first thank all my staff who have worked closely with me and appreciated all the inputs and discussions on how to run our section.
