Regional Director Announcement

On Behalf of the EMARI Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to announce that Simon Thomas will be the next EMARI Region Director starting April 1, 2024.

Our bylaws specifically state that any person interested in the Region Director position submit a letter of interest by August 1st of the election year (odd years for EMARI).  We only had one candidate submit a letter of interest.  Based on guidance for the Division and Robert’s Rule of Parliamentary Order, the current Board voted to appoint Simon Thomas as the next EMARI Region Director.

Simon has served on the board for 17 years as the past Blue Hills Petrol Director and 8 years as Assistant and Alternate Region Director.  He is very active in EMARI programs and leads a number of board initiatives. The Board and the Region will be in good hands.

Congratulations Simon!

Chris Mitchell
NSP EMARI Region Director
