    Eastern Washington Section Manager Jo Whitney, KA7LJQ, was also the only nominee when the June 4 nomination deadline arrived. Whitney, of Yakima, was initially scheduled to start her elected term of office on October 1. However, she was appointed to start her term of office on July 1, when outgoing SM Jack Tiley, AD7FO, stepped down before the completion of his term.
