I would like to thank member Paul Newman for taking on the role of representative for Central North region. I'm sure Paul will be introducing himself shortly to members in the region. Central North has been without a rep for quite a while now so I would like to ask all our members from this regional to help Paul re-establish meetings and events. Likewise with adjacent regions we will all have the opportunity when renewing membership shortly to 'tick' a box and receive information about events and meetings from selected regions (other than your own). With some regions being relatively large if living near the edge you may be close geographically to a meeting or event in another region - you can now easily have access to that information.
