Regions and Divisions

The NMRA's Districts (see image below) are divided into 17 Regions which cover the United States, Australasia, Canada, and the British Isles now including Europe. There are other NMRA organizations in the rest of the world. Each of the 15 Regions which cover the United States and Canada are made up of, with one exception, two or more adjoining states/provinces or parts of states. The NMRA Regions elect officers and publish newsletters. Each Region holds one or more conventions each year, usually two-day affairs on weekends, making it easy for members to attend.

NMRA District Map

Members have prepared a downloadable Regions & Divisions Handbook, containing ideas and assistance in running and maintaining a Region or Division, as well as a Division Superintendent's Handbook to assist Division officers in understanding what is involved at the Division level. These living documents provide insights into the activities possible at all levels of the NMRA organization.

For those living in North America, please check the map to find out which Region you are in. All regions, including other parts of the world, are listed in the area below the map, which include direct links to the Region information.

The Regions are further divided into Divisions, which also have officers and publish newsletters.  Most Divisions hold one or more events each year.  The smaller size of Divisions makes it even easier for members to attend these events.  Consult the President of your Region or the NMRA Headquarters office to find out your Division and the name and phone number of its Superintendent.  Many (but not all) Division meets are announced in the NMRA Bulletin.

Note to NMRA Region and Division officers: For changes in officers, please secy [at] (subject: Officer%20update) (email the NMRA Secretary).  For all other updates to the information below, especially Email addresses and URLs for Region/Division pages, web [at] (subject: Change%20to%20Region%20page%20information) (please email the NMRA web team).  Also let us know to add links to online Division Newsletters, please.  States noted with an '*' indicates that the whole state is not included in the Region.
