Thank you to all who attended and contributed to our fantastic combined conference with our fellow OSR from the Southern Region! We were thrilled to launch our OSR Affinity Groups for the combined regions for OSRs to have a smaller community focused around specific issues, to serve as a think tank and collaborative space. Each affinity group will be facilitated by one of our newly elected regional delegates who are listed below.

Legislative Affairs: Rima Sakr, firstname.lastname@example.org

Our online election for Central Region Chair and is currently open for applications and we will be electing our Central Region Communications Delegate at LSL in Phoenix. Please consider running if you are looking for a more formal way to get involved with OSR at a Regional and National level. In the meantime, your newly elected regional delegates and I will be meeting to define goals for the coming year and to prepare to transition as we welcome the new Chair of the central region.
In our next Central Region Email, please look out for a place to submit OSR Spotlights and we look forward to hearing about what you have been doing at your respective institutions!
