Something about handing out finger sandwiches at dinner parties. Possibly wearing frills and tights?

Thanks for the explanation. For a moment I thought it was a position of title only. Where did I get the idea that someone in that position might want to try to promote Overland Bound with the idea of increasing membership numbers. Perhaps that person might want to speak to other members in his or her region wrt any ideas they might have for gatherings or even the occasional "clean up" day where the environment is looked after.

I'm glad I'm not an Ambassador as I clearly have too many ideas and already do "clean ups". I must learn to suppress my ideas.

Perhaps we should supply some Ferrero Rocher for dispersal by the Ambassador. (Forgive my regional joke)

@Michael I am a new member (my emblem is being shipped as we speak) but long time overlander in my modified Jeep JKU. Me and my brother (who also has a 4x4) have a great expedition over new years planned to a totally off the grid spot we have heard about. Will be happy to do a trip report.

Would be very keen on being an ambassador for New Zealand, Upper North Island region at some point once I build up my status on the forum.

Cheers,

Ryan

Anything on the docket for the Southeast Region....specifically Ga or Fl ? Pretty quiet unless your out west.
Absolutely there is stuff going on in the SE, you can use the search function of the forum and for some current info check out the SE Face Book page. Your Regional Ambassador can help also. @AdventureWithDanan

Hey all!

There is a strong need for us to expand our region presence for those who would like to connect locally! Regional Directors will be the primary point of contact for the area. Directors meet with OLB HQ every other week, and are our primary point of contact for regional needs. They also have a very direct line of communication with us, and are kept current with Overland Bound operations. Regional Directors are managed by @Kent R who is our Executive Regional Director (all regions) and works to maintain region healthy, and establish new regions worldwide. Directors will assign Regional Representatives who will help them to support the community. In keeping with our core principles, it is very much a position of service to the Overland Bound community.

Regions are added as needs arise, and as interest grows in an area. A single Regional Director may start a region. Region hierarchy is as follows: Continent, Region. The region name gets all the press, not the continent. For example, the "West" region is actually "North America, West" and "West Europe" is actually "Europe, West Europe".

View attachment 19930

US regions are based on the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior.

@Kent R is Overland Bound's Executive Regional Director, and works with all Region Directors and Reps to provide local support around the world. Its a huge task. Our currently defined regions all have members, and different levels of maturity and engagement. Active Regions have designated patches and logos, and we will produce new logos for regions with active participation. Regions and Directors are:
  1. Executive Regional Director (all regions): @Kent R
  2. US Northwest - Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho - OPEN
  3. US West - Nevada, California, Hawaii - @Kent R
  4. US Rocky Mountain - Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Utah, Colorado, Kansas - @Russell Peters
  5. US Southwest - Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma - OPEN
  6. US Midwest - Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa - OPEN
  7. US Southeast - Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Puerto Rico - @AdventureWithDanan
  8. US East - Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia. Virginia, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Delaware - @Chris Jones
  9. Mexico - OPEN
  10. Puerto Rico - OPEN
  11. Australia Queensland - @Luis Merlo
  12. Australia New South Wales - OPEN
  13. New Zealand - @Luis Merlo

  20. West Europe - OPEN
  21. Mid Europe - OPEN
  22. South Europe - OPEN
  23. Southeast Europe - OPEN
  24. Southwest Europe - OPEN
  25. East Europe - OPEN
  26. North Europe - OPEN

  29. Central Africa - OPEN
  30. Eastern Africa - OPEN
  31. Southern Africa - OPEN
  32. Asia - Middle - OPEN
  33. Antarctica - OPEN
Regarding local region OLB Facebook groups: To be an "Official" Overland Bound facebook group for the region, it must be a closed (private) group, and OLB HQ must be admins. I'm mentioning this because some existing OLB region groups would like to become, "Official".

The patches will be available soon, and can have your number added for those that want to represent their region, or show which regions they've been too!

As always, glad to have your questions!
