R9 Task Forces:

How We Carry the Message in R9

This year (2016-17) we are trying a new approach to reach our service objectives in Region 9. We are following a “Goal/Task” model with our service work. We have 3 “Task Forces” working on agreed goals and tasks. We are excited and hope this new structure will strengthen our efforts to carry the message of OA recovery in our region.

If you are interested in serving (along with the Assembly Reps) on any of the “Task Forces” in R9 to help with the goals and tasks (listed below) please contact the individual Task Force Coordinator.
