Board of Directors 

The Region 3 Board meets three times a year. These are usually at the region convention in the spring and at two "A" rides. Due to COVID-19, meetings instead have been held via Zoom calls.

Members are welcome to attend any meeting, though some Executive sessions may be closed.

Directors are your representatives in guiding the organization.  If you have concerns, want changes, or just have questions, these are the people to contact.

Contact BOD

Region Districts

Region 3 is divided into two districts.  District 1 includes Colorado east of the Continental Divide, and all states and provinces north.  District 2 includes Colorado west of the Continental Divide, New Mexico and Utah.  Each district is represented by one director.

There are three "At-Large" directors who represent the entire Region.

There are also two national directors who represent the Region 3 at the national level.  Note that these directors are also on the Region 3 board.


Elections are held every October for national and regional board of directors.  Officers are elected by their respective boards.  

Region directors serve two year terms and national directors serve three year terms.  Both are limited to two consecutive terms.  

If you have interest in becoming a board director, or know someone who would be good in that position, contact the region Vice President.  They will get you on the ballot or contact your suggested person.
