I have a department in my company that used to be headed by someone who has since left the company.  He set up a recurring monthly appointment.  When you look at the series, you can see that he is the owner/creator.  Is there any way that we can change this recurring appointment to be from the new department head without deleting all recurring appointments and resending the series with the new owner?

short answer, no.  (I'm not saying it's not possible, but...)

from MS article (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA011276781033.aspx):

Change meeting organizers  
If a recurring meeting is changing to a new organizer, there is not a way to reassign the ownership of the meeting. The original organizer should send an update with a new end date  the past meetings remain on everyones calendars, but future occurrences after the end date are removed. The new meeting organizer should send a new meeting request for meetings in the future.
