Author : Ewan McLeod - VK4ERM

It is with regret that the Board of the WIA announces the resignation of Mal Johnson VK6LC from the position of National WIA Awards Manager, a position he has held since January 2001, citing personal reasons and views.

During his tenure Mal continually developed the awards system including a suite of highly sought after Certificates. Mal's dedication to the amateur radio community lead to him being awarded the inaugural Chris Jones Award at the WIA AGM in Parkes in 2007. The contents of Mal's awards web site and the certificate details are being incorporated into the new WIA web site which is under development.

Freed of his award responsibilities Mal will be able to spend more time on air enjoying his contesting and DXing.

From 31st January the Awards Office in Perth will be closed and future enquiries should be directed the WIA National Office, P.O. Box 2175 Caulfield Junction, Victoria 3161.
