New Section Manager for BC/Yukon
It is indeed a pleasure for me to announce the appointment of Paul Giffin VA7MPG Section Manager for British Columbia/Yukon effective today. Paul has been licensed since 1993 and has been active in emergency communications for the past 47years, over 40 of them as an operational member of the RCMP. He is currently Emergency Coordinator for the City of Nanaimo and the southern portion of the Regional District of Nanaimo. He is also President of Coast Emergency Communications Group and the mid island Assistant Regional Emergency Radio Representative for the BC Provincial Emergency Program. Paul resides in Gabriola Island, British Columbia. Welcome aboard Paul.
In making this announcement, I would like to sincerely thank outgoing Section Manager Drew Watson VA7DR who completed his two year term yesterday. His service to the RAC and the BC/YT Section is very much appreciated.
Paul is eager to receive news from your area along with any ideas or suggestions that you may have. He is also in the process establishing a BC/YT Section Bulletin service so why not drop him an e-mail to be sure that you are included. You can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
