Regional Representatives

A number of BMO pensioners from various associations/groups located across the country have volunteered to work alongside us in a liaison capacity.  They provide a conduit to enable us to publish stories and interesting articles about BMO pensioners from their respective regions. They also help to promote membership in the BMO Cyber Pensioner organization within their region (e.g. meetings, luncheons, and other social events.)
