The main focus of this Representative position is to maintain a communication channel between NAMGBR and the OMGC.

The monthly newsletter is a great way to communicate with Club members to keep them up to date on recent past and future events, as well as provide tips and insights to just about everything that goes on in the world of MG! You can peek at the last 12 months of The Dashpot, created by Peter, on the website.
