New Regions instead of Districts

Author: Communications Committee/Monday, March 5, 2012/Categories: General

As of July 2012 our Districts will be renamed to Regions. The object of this is to lessen division of  the state by counties and more by geographical boundaries. These boundaries are also drawn to help local chapter development and growth by grouping them with other chapters with similar needs and characteristics. The logos will be redone and posted to the web site.

The big change will come July 2013. This is when the Region boundaries will change. Below are the Regions and what counties will be part of each Region. A few Regions will be merging.

  • Region 1 - Nassau, Suffolk
  • Region 2 -  NYC, Bronx, Kings, Queens, Richmond
  • Region 3 - Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselear, Schoharie, Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Westchester, Sullivan
  • Region 4 - Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren, Washington, Clinton, Essex, Franklin, St. Lawrence
  • Region 5 - Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Madison
  • Region 6 - Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Schuyler, Tioga, Tompkins
  • Region 7 - Cayuga, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne, Yates
  • Region 8 - Allegheny, Cattaraugus, Chatautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, Wyoming

Guidelines will be established to ensure Chapters currently established on the borders of regional boundaries will have the ability to determine the position of their chapter within a particular region that best serves the needs of the members of the chapter.
