honor to serve as President for the past nine years and as a board
member since 1999. I’m confident that the successes of the past nine
years while serving as President will lead to new opportunities in
AMSAT’s future as Joe assumes the helm working with the new Senior
Leadership Team. I’m also thrilled that Paul Stoetzer, N8HM, and
Clayton Coleman, W5PFG, are new voting members on the Board, including
the assumption of my former slot. I’m excited that the new Board
combined with the new Senior Leadership Team will bring insight,
enthusiasm, energy and commitment to move AMSAT forward.”
