Seacoast Division NMRA Fall Event, Saturday, October 17th, at the Stratham Firehouse, Stratham, NH
Consider running for a seat on the Division’s Board of Directors, or for an office in the Division. There are three openings to the Board of Directors this year with the terms of Larry Cannon, Tom Coulombe, and Mike Grahame ending. Terms are for three years and start with elections at the January, 2016 meeting. The Board meets quarterly for 30 minutes to one hour after the conclusion of the quarterly events. It is an enjoyable way of getting involved. No expertise is required, just a passion for the hobby of model railroading. All are welcome. Serving at this level earns credits towards the Association Volunteer AP certificate. If you are interested in serving, or if you want to suggest another member as a candidate, contact Tom Oxnard, Chip Faulter, or Peter McKenney, for more information.
