The current three districts in the Conference - District 17, District 21, and District 22 - still represent most of the West excluding Los Angeles and Oregon and have a total household membership over 20,000.
I am impressed with the camaraderie and willingness of this board to face each and every pressing issue with a professional attitude and a genuine caring for each other’s district as well as their own. We are truly blessed with an amazing group and I’m sure the recent booming successes of our tournaments and STACs has a lot to do with the loyalty of these members.
I'm also impressed with their united support of our conference vehicle, the Contract Bridge Forum of which I'm approaching a quarter century as publisher. In that time I’ve never seen a better board, nor can imagine one - unit, district or conference.
So there are the four men and two women who represent the Western Conference. Like I said, an amazing group of talent and dedication. Add to the formula Tom Shulman of Las Vegas, our treasurer extraordinaire, plus my very dedicated Forum employees Leticia Magana and Sergio Mendivil and our three district editors, Joel Hoersch, Rich Luttrell and Jared Johnson and you can see we are in good hands with all states.
I am impressed.
