I won't say to you that serving as a regional director is a "Walk-in-the-Park" -as you must attend two meetings each year (i.e.- the AGM and a short Fall meeting), and partake in many "on-line" discussions involving the "day-to-day" business of JCNA. (Some basic Computer knowledge in e-mail usage is therefore needed.) This is in addition to serving on the front-line in representing the many JCNA members of your District, and the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of JCNA. Your remuneration for this effort is solely the personal satisfaction of a "Job well done", and the appreciation of the several Jaguar Clubs and many JCNA members which you represent.
