Future of Region 8
The recommendations of the OGS Governance Review include doing away with the Regional Directors and replacing them with province-wide directors with certain skills. If this change is made, what happens to regions? Do we need to keep them, perhaps adjusted in size and content? Would this benefit the branches/SIGs by allowing better relationships between them. Or do we just leave it and allow branches/SIGs to "affiliate" with however they like, if any? What's the advantage to keeping the regions or is there a better way to do things?
Here in Region 8, I believe we have a strong organization and we communicate regularly with those other genealogical groups that are interested: LCGS, BIFHSGO and UOVGG. What do you think of the practice of including these groups and should this level of cooperation spread across the province?
