Timothy Ellam, VE6SH/G4HUA, Re-elected as President, Thomas Wrede, DF2OO, elected as Vice President of International Amateur Radio Union

IARU mem­ber soci­eties have rat­i­fied the nom­i­na­tion of Tim Ellam, VE6SH/G4HUA, and Thomas Wrede, DF2OO, for Pres­i­dent and Vice Pres­i­dent, respec­tive­ly, for a five-year term begin­ning May 9, 2024.

Tim­o­thy Ellam begins his 4th term as Pres­i­dent and thanked mem­ber soci­eties for their sup­port, con­grat­u­lat­ed Thomas Wrede on his elec­tion as Vice Pres­i­dent, and also offered a spe­cial and heart­felt thank you to Ole Garpes­tad, LA2RR, who retired as IARU Vice Pres­i­dent. “I have had the priv­i­lege to work with Ole for the past 15 years. He has been a rock for the offi­cer team and some­one who has sup­port­ed the work of IARU for a very long time. We would not have enjoyed the suc­cess­es we have had at past WRCs with­out Ole’s lead­er­ship and ded­i­ca­tion. I look for­ward to work­ing with Thomas to con­tin­ue pro­mot­ing the ama­teur and ama­teur satel­lite services”.

Thomas Wrede has been active in IARU mat­ters for sev­er­al years and has man­aged the Deutsch­er Ama­teur Radio Club (DARC) inter­na­tion­al affairs team since 2009. “Ham radio has pos­i­tive­ly influ­enced my pro­fes­sion­al career as a com­mu­ni­ca­tions engi­neer and has always enriched my life,” says Thomas, “and I am look­ing for­ward to giv­ing back by active­ly sup­port­ing the objec­tives and mis­sion of the IARU”.
