Durango & Silverton RR Shots |About Me
After I received my MMR in 2005, I continued editing The Fusee, the newsletter of the Thousand Lakes Region. I was elected to the TLR's Board of Directors as Publicity Director in 2006, and served for four years in that capacity. I received the "Association Official" certificate in October, 2010.
Much like the "Association Volunteer" certificate, there's not a whole lot I can show you here for the "Association Official" certificate, since it all involves time spent in an elected position within the NMRA.
The NMRA website has a list of activities that qualify for this certificate, which I'll summarize here. But please visit www.nmra.org for the full list explanations.
You must have served in an office of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, or Director, and have completed satisfactory service in one of the following:
And that's about it. Get elected, serve the time, get the certificate! It's actually pretty easy -- seriously.
And the same holds true here as I mentioned for the "Volunteer" certificate -- as a lone wolf guy, I discovered I enjoyed meeting and getting to know other modelers. And I enjoyed the fact that I was "giving back" to the hobby.
