Thanks to Brad Slone for putting together this information on how to host a regional convention!

Also, thanks to those members who have provided photos for the banner rotation. We are always looking for more photographs of regional layouts to use for page banners. If you would like to share a photograph of your layout, please send a high quality photo to the region webmasters and we'll add it to the banner rotation.

Division Officers/Members, please remember to send email to the region webmasters with updates after officer elections so that we can keep the division pages up to date. Thanks!!!


MCoR MApMCoR includes the southern half of the state of Iowa, the southern portion of Illinois adjacent to the St. Louis metropolitan area, and the entire states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. Since 1990, MCoR's leadership has fostered a strong program of developing local divisions with the purpose of bringing the potential for NMRA activity and involvement to a community near you. From only two divisions in 1990 located in metropolitan areas, MCoR now has well over a dozen divisions and over 1,200 members.

As division home pages are developed, they will be linked to the Division's name in the Board of Directors listing which follows. Be sure to visit the site for the division closest to you to find out who to contact for information on local meetings and other activities. E-mail addresses are included where available. Click on the e-mail link and your Web browser should allow you to compose an e-mail message. Feel free to send e-mail to MCoR Directors or Division officers to find out more about model railroading in your locality.
